Actor Stanley Tucci, who can be seen in theaters as Caesar Flickerman in The Hunger Games, has signed on to star in Your Voice in My Head for Warner Bros. and director David Yates. We reported last month that Emma Watson will play the female lead.

The project is based on the memoirs of screenwriter Emma Forrest, who begins a downward spiral after her relationship with a famous journalist ends. She is saved from the brink of suicide by a psychiatrist who is terminally ill. Emma Watson will play Emma Forrest and Stanley Tucci is set to portray the therapist. It is said that the therapist role was being sought after by A-list talent such as George Clooney before Stanley Tucci won the role.

David Yates is directing Your Voice in My Head from a screenplay by Emma Forrest, who is adapting her own memoirs. Alison Owen is producing through her Ruby Films banner, with production scheduled to begin sometime this summer.
