> 'Harry Potter' director David Yates to take 'The Stand'

Watson is in talks with Yates to play a young woman who attempts to take her own life, but is saved by a New York-based psychiatrist who has terminal cancer. The screenplay is based on a memoir by Emma Forrest, and has been penned by the writer herself.

Your Voice in My Head is believed to be Yates's next movie, with an expectation that he will direct it before starting work on A Reliable Wife at Sony Pictures.

The studio is believed to be keen on securing an A-list star such as Tom Hanks or George Clooney as the male lead for Your Voice in My Head.

Yates directed the final four Harry Potter movies and told Digital Spy last summer that he would be happy to work with Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe again in the future.
