Harry Potter director David Yates puts Your Voice In My Head
David Yates, director of four of the HARRY POTTER films, is attached to direct an adaptation of Emma Forrest's "Your Voice In My Head".
Ruby Films is developing the film from funding from the BFI Film Fund. Screen Daily reports that Yates is deliberately going for a smaller project after living in the world of HARRY POTTER for so long, and you can't really blame him for that.
As for the book, it's a memoir by Forrest, a young British journalist who had a bit of a breakdown while living in NYC.
“It’s about a young woman who self harms and she visits this psychiatrist who helps her to learn to live again,” Yates said. “It’s got very heightened, odd moments in it that are slightly trippy.”
Emma Forrest wrote the screenplay and Alison Owen will produce. “Emma is a extraordinary talent who is bringing a beautiful, contemporary young female character with razor sharp dialogue to the screen, and David is a wonderful, sympathetic director, clearly capable of getting the finest performances out of young actors as we’ve seen with Potter,” said Alison Owen.
