Josh Duhamel is in talks to star in drama You're Not You.
The Transformers actor is currently in discussions to appear alongside Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum in the big-screen adaptation of Michelle Wildgen's novel, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Emmy is already on board to play a "self-absorbed college student" who becomes a part-time carer for a woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which Oscar-winner Hilary will portray.
It is not known what role Josh is set to take, but he's tipped to play a love interest.
Hilary will also co-produce the movie with her 2S Films partner Molly Smith, Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures.
Nights In Rodanthe director George C Wolfe will direct You're Not You, from a script written by Shana Feste and Jordan Roberts.
Josh, who appeared in all three of Michael Bay's Transformers films, will next star in ensemble comedy Movie 43 and romantic drama Safe Haven opposite Julianne Hough.
