After spending the last few years directing Harry Potter movies, David Yates has been casting around for new projects, with his name rumoured for everything from The Stand to Gangster Squad to an Al Capone flick.
Everything he’s been mentioned for has been a big flashy project, but it looks like he might actually want to go for something a tad quieter as ScreenDaily reports he’s signed on to make Your Voice in My Head for Ruby Films.
The project is based on Emma Forrest’s memoir, which chronicles her suicidal tendencies and quest to become a better person by visiting a psychiatrist. Yates commented, “It’s about a young woman who self harms and she visits this psychiatrist who helps her to learn to live again. It’s got very heightened, odd moments in it that are slightly trippy.”
David Yates will direct from a screenplay by Emma Forrest, which she adapted from her own book. It isn’t known when Your Voice in My Head might shoot.
