Last month Hilary Swank signed up to star in the disability drama, You’re Not You, which sounds a bit like a female version of Untouchable. Now THR reports she’s got some company in the form of Shameless star Emmy Rossum.
Rossum will portray a selfish college student who gets a new purpose in life when she takes a job caring for a woman (Hilary Swank) afflicted with ALS, aka Motor Neurone Disease. George C. Wolfe (Nights in Rodanthe) is directing from a screenplay by Shana Feste and Jordan Roberts, based on Michelle Wildgen’s debut novel.
It isn’t clear when the movie might shoot. Rossum will next be seen in Warner Bros.’ Beautiful Creatures, which arrives in cinemas early next year.
