Exciting news! According to a few articles I stumbled upon, it looks like Emmy in talks to be gracing the big screen with Hilary Swank soon. This sounds like it could be great for Emmy’s movie career!
Emmy Rossum, one of the stars of Showtime’s Shameless, is in negotiations to star with Hilary Swank in the drama You’re Not You.
Swank and her 2S Films partner Molly Smith are producing along with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures.
An adaptation of a Michelle Wildgen book, You centers on an aimless and self-absorbed college student (Rossum) whose life is changed when she takes a part-time job caring for a woman (Swank) with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. (source)
Emmy Rossum has joined to the cast of director George C. Wolfe’s You’re Not You. She’ll star opposite the recently cast Hilary Swank in the adaptation of Michelle Wildgen’s novel, officially described as follows:
Bec is adrift. It’s the summer before her junior year in college. She’s sleeping with a married professor, losing interest in her classes, and equivocating about her career. She takes a job caring for Kate, a thirty-six-year-old woman who has been immobilized by ALS.
As it turns out, before the disease Kate was a stylish and commanding woman, an advertising executive and an accomplished chef. Now, as she and Bec spend long days together, Bec begins to absorb Kate’s sophistication and her sensuality, cooking for her, sharing her secrets, and gradually beginning to live her own life with a boldness informed by Kate’s influence. The more intense her commitment to Kate, the further Bec strays from the complacency of her college life. And when Kate’s marriage veers into dangerous territory, Bec will have to choose between the values of her old life and the allure of an entirely new one.
What do you guys think? I’ll add it to Emmy’s upcoming projects as soon as we can see some confirmation that she gets the role. Fingers crossed!
