Emmy Rossum could be the cure for Hilary Swank’s disease in You’re Not You

Hot punnet of honey Emmy Rossum (“Shameless”) will join Cinema’s Million Dollar Babe Hilary Swank in the drama “You’re Not You”.

The Hollywood Reporter
says Rossum, re-entering the movie leagues after spending much of the last few years playing the eldest daughter on HBO’s crackerjack comedy “Shameless”, will play “a self-absorbed college student whose life is changed when she takes a job caring for a woman (Swank) with Lou Gehrig’s disease.”

George C. Wolfe, last seen mopping up tears after his Sparks’ adaptation “Nights in Rodanthe”, is helming.

Swank’s producing company is shepherding the project; Denise Di Novi – currently overseas overseeing “Mad Max Fury Road” and it’s escalating budget and shooting-days issues – is also listed as a producer.

“You’re Not You” is based on a Michelle Wildglen book.
