The lead casting for Your Voice in My Head has come full circle. The adaptation of the Emma Forrest memoir was initially set to mark the next project for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates, and he quickly signed Emma Watson to star. The film offers up a meaty lead role as it chronicles Forrest’s troublesome and self-harming behavior, as well as her relationship with her psychiatrist. Yates subsequently dropped out of the project as a result of scheduling issues, and then Watson was replaced by Emily Blunt earlier this year.
Now it has been announced that Watson has rejoined the project in the lead role, with Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall) onboard to direct. Stanley Tucci was previously in talks for the coveted male lead, but it appears that he is no longer involved with the project. Production is now finally set to begin on November 4th with a script by Forrest. Hit the jump to read the press release.
