Watson May Have Your Voice In My Head
For director David Yates

Watson May Have Your Voice In My Head

While he's been busy the last few years giving the Harry Potter franchise its spectacular (and successful) final run, David Yates has clearly decided that for his next trick, he wants to tackle something a little more grounded in reality, latching on to an adaptation of Emma Forrest's book Your Voice In My Head. But it appears he's not quite ready to cut all the ties to the wizarding world, as he's been in discussions with Emma Watson to star.

Deadline reports that Watson is in talks to take the lead, as a young woman who attempts suicide, but who is saved by a New York-based psychiatrist with his own issues: he's dying of cancer.

There's no word yet on who will take that part, but the hope is that someone on the level of Tom Hanks or George Clooney will be interested.

And if she signs, Watson won't be the only connection to Potter, as Warner Bros. is backing the film, after unsuccessfully trying to convince Yates to take on one of its bigger movies, such as Imitation Game or The Stand.

The director has a few projects sitting on his To Do list including Al Capone epic Cicero, Jonathan Tropper's farce This Is Where I Leave You and the still-floating-in-the-devlopment-vortex Doctor Who film. But it sounds like Your Voice In My Head will almost certainly be his next gig. Watson, meanwhile, was last seen in My Week With Marilyn and will next crop up in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
