Emma Watson to reunite with ‘Harry Potter’ director David Yates

The actress is being lined up to star in new drama 'Your Voice In My Head'

Emma Watson is set to reunite with Harry Potter director David Yates for a new project.

The actress, who played Hermione Granger throughout the hit series, is being lined up to star in new drama Your Voice In My Head for Warner Bros, according to Deadline.

Watson would play a young woman who attempts suicide, before being saved by a New York psychiatrist who has terminal cancer. The script is based on a memoir by journalist Emma Forrest, who has adapted it herself.

The studio are apparently looking to secure an A-lister like Tom Hanks or George Clooney to play the male lead. Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter films, is expected to start work on Your Voice In My Head before starting work on A Reliable Wife for Sony Pictures.

Watson last appeared in My Week With Marilyn, and can next be seen in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Yesterday (February 1) she was voted the world’s second most desirable woman in a new survey behind Zooey Deschanel.
