Stanley Tucci is currently in talks to star alongside “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson in the psychological drama, “Your Voice in My Head.” At the moment, an almost unrecognizable Tucci can be seen in “The Hunger Games” as the flamboyant master of ceremonies.
Directed by David Yates (Warner Bros.'”Harry Potter”) and based on the memoir by screenwriter and journalist Emma Forrest, “Your Voice in My Head” follows a talented young woman who attempts suicide in the wake of a crumbling relationship. Tucci is in talks with Warners to play the terminally-ill psychiatrist who helps her to recover. Ruby Films’ Alison Owen is producer.
Variety reports that the role of psychiatrist was eyed by several top actors, including George Clooney, before the role when to Tucci. Variety writes: “Sources say Warners is already eyeing this as a major contender in the 2013 race, especially the best-actor slot.”
They better get cracking.
