• Sean Penn is in talks to star in the action thriller Prone Gunman, based on the novel by the late French author Jean-Patrick Manchette about an international assassin who runs afoul of the organization that hires him after he says he wants out of the business. (Silly assassin; shadowy global organizations are never keen on quiet retirement.) Peter Travis adapted the screenplay; there is no director yet attached. [THR]

Josh Duhamel is in talks for a role in upcoming drama You're Not You. Directed by Nights in Rodanthe helmer George C Wolfe, the film will star Hilary Swank as a woman living with Als (also known as motor neurone disease or Lou Gehrig's disease). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Duhamel and Emmy Rossum are both set to star, with Rossum taking the role of a self-absorbed (more) »

Based on the novel written by Michelle Wildgen, You’Re Not You sees Emmy Rossum (The Phantom Of The Opera) feature as a selfish, self-absorbed college student who changes her ways once she starts a part-time job caring for a lady (Hilary Swank – Million Dollar Baby) who suffers from Als (a form of motor neurone disease).
Directed by George C. Wolfe (Nights In Rodanthe), I’d guess that Duhamel will probably be playing some sort of love interest. It also seems that Hollywood can’t keep its hands off of book adaptations, as Josh is currently filming the Nicholas Sparks-adaptation Safe Haven.

He won't be coming back for Michael Bay's Transformers 4, but Josh Duhamel is now in talks for a part alongside Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum in You're Not You, a new drama based on the book by Michelle Wildgen. The story follows a young, selfish college student who begins to see her attitude about life start to change when she becomes the caretaker for a woman with Als (better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). Duhamel's casting was revealed by THR, but the trade doesn't say what role he will be playing in the new movie. As you probably could have guessed, Swank will be playing the dying woman while Rossum will assume the role of the self-obsessed student. George C. Wolfe, who made his feature directorial debut in 2008 with the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Nights in Rodanthe, is helming the new movie, which Shana Feste (Country Strong) and Jordan Roberts »

When you've won two Oscars and your best options are starring in "The Resident" and "New Year's Eve," you start to produce movies yourself. Thus Hilary Swank and 2S Films' partner Molly Smith are producing their second feature, "You're Not You," directed by George C. Wolfe ("Nights in Rodanthe") and adapted by Shana Feste and Jordan Roberts from Michelle Wilgden's novel. "The business is ever elusive, always exciting, always frustrating," Swank told Toh last year. "I want to make movies that people talk about." Emmy Rossum is in talks to co-star in Swank's long-in-development "You're Not You," which traces the relationship between a former ad exec suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease (Swank) and her caretaker, a directionless college student (Rossum) who is engaged in an affair with a married professor. She aids the sophisticated older woman as they navigate the swift progress of »

It looks like Emmy Rossum is back on the rise once again. The actress was cast with something of a bit of hoopla in Joel Schumacher's "The Phantom Of The Opera," the big-screen take on the famed musical that wasn't quite the hot ticket or awards contender many thought it would be. She since landed a role on the Showtime series "Shameless," and next spring, has a juicy part as the sexy villainess of sorts in Warner Bros.' Ya movie hopeful "Beautiful Creatures." And now, she's going to take care of an Oscar winner. Rossum has joined Hilary Swank in the Lou Gehrig's disease drama "You're Not You." An adaptation of Michelle Wildgen’s first novel, the story follows the relationship that develops between an ill woman (Swank) suffering from Als (aka Lou Gehrig's Disease) and her young caregiver (Rossum).

George C. Wolfe (Nights in Rodanthe) is directing from a screenplay by Shana Feste and Jordan Roberts, based on Michelle Wildgen's debut novel. Hilary Swank is also producing alongside Molly Smith, Denise Di Novi, and Alison Greenspan.
The Nicholas Sparks brand is pretty bankable in Hollywood. At its best, The Notebook and Dear John are bringing in $81 million and $80M in ticket sales, respectively. Even lesser-received Sparks romances like Nights in Rodanthe pulled in $41M worth of business. So Relativity has to feel pretty good about its upcoming Safe Haven, an adaptation of Sparks best-selling novel that stars Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel in the tense story of star-crossed lovers running from a threat … as can be the case in a Sparks story. We had the privilege of visiting the Safe Haven set in North Carolina over the summer, and will have a full report on Fandango soon. In the meantime, Relativity shared the first four official still photos from the upcoming...

After a whirlwind decade for Hilary Swank, which included winning Oscars for lead roles in both “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” things have slowed down recently for the actress – with only a couple films like 2010’s “Conviction” and a bit role in “New Years Eve” standing out recently. But Swank seems to be making her way back to the screen in a big way, with a Phillip Noyce-helmed HBO TV movie entitled “Mary & Martha” in the pipeline, a part alongside Meryl Streep in Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman," and now she’s lining up yet another feature. “Nights in Rodanthe” filmmaker George C. Wolfe has come aboard the Swank film “You’re Not You,” which follows the relationship that develops between an ill woman (Swank) suffering from Als (aka Lou Gehrig's Disease) and her young caregiver. The film is an adaptation of Michelle Wildgen’s. »
