Emma Watson is in negotiations to star in 'Your Voice in My Head'.

The British actress - who recently filmed a role in novel adaptation 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' - will reteam with 'Harry Potter' director David Yates for the project, which tells the tale of a young woman who attempts to kill herself before being saved by a psychiatrist who himself is dying.

Warner Bros is keen to get Watson on board, and is considering Tom Hanks and George Clooney for the role of the medical professional, according to Deadline.com.

The movie is based on the memoir by Emma Forrest.

Emma most recently took a small role of wardrobe assistant Lucy alongside Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh in Marilyn Monroe biopic 'My Week with Marilyn', and she previously admitted she has an affinity for the late Hollywood siren.

She said: "I certainly feel a lot for her and for what she went through.

"I think she was just trying to find her feet in the midst of this kind of crazy circus that went on around her, and trying to find some sort of balance and some sort of normality in her life, and I can definitely relate to that."
