Emma Watson Hears Your Voice In My Head Again
Francesca Gregorini directing now

There was a brief flurry of activity last year around the adaptation of Emma Forrest’s book Your Voice In My Head, and some excitement from Harry Potter fans at the thought of director David Yates and Hermione herself, Emma Watson teaming back up again. Then Yates moved on and all went quiet, but the film appears to be back on its feet with Watson still attached.

Tanner Hall co-director Francesca Gregorini is the woman taking on the project now, following its time in development hell. While Warner Bros. had been backing the film when Yates and Watson seemed likely to collaborate, but now it has slipped into the indie-financing world via Benaroya Pictures.

The plot finds a young woman living what seems to be the perfect, party-filled life in New York, before attempting suicide. She starts going to counselling with a selfless psychiatrist who is himself dealing with terminal cancer.

Forrest adapted her own novel for the screen and Gregorini will start filming this November in New York. Stanley Tucci was attached for a while to play the shrink, but there’s no indication of whether he’ll return. As for Watson, she has Darren Aronofsky’s Noah due on March 28.
