After completing the Harry Potter franchise last summer David Yates was looking to re-team with Emma Watson and Warner Bros. for Your Voice In My Head, a drama that was expected to be his next film. Well unfortunately a Potter reunion will no longer be happening, as according to Deadline Yates has had to withdraw due to “personal reasons involving a family health situation”.
Your Voice In My Head is written by British author/journalist Emma Forrest and follows “a young woman who attempts suicide before being saved by a New York-based psychiatrist who’s dying of cancer.” Watson was the only cast member attached, but Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games and The Lovely Bones) was mentioned as one of the actors circling the psychiatrist role.
Warner Bros. were said to be interested due to the involvement of Yates, so whether they still move forward without him remains to be seen.
Watson will next appear in The Perks of Being a Wallflower opposite Paul Rudd and Logan Lerman, and she may return to the fantasy genre in a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie which is being produced and directed by Guillermo del Toro.
