7732276.jpgFor his first project post-Harry Potter, David Yates, director of the final four installments of the blockbuster Warner Bros. franchise, is reportedly eyeing a familiar face to play the lead. According to Deadline, Emma Watson is “in discussions” with Yates to star in Your Voice Inside My Head, a drama adapted from Emma Forrest’s memoir of being saved from suicide by a cancer-stricken psychiatrist. Warner Bros., the studio expected to develop the project, is said to be looking at several big names, including Tom Hanks and George Clooney, to play the role of the psychiatrist who brings poor Emma back from the brink. Suicide? Cancer? Clooney? Hmmm … sounds suspiciously like Oscar-bait.
