Emmy Rossum takes carer's role

Emmy Rossum is in talks to star opposite double Oscar winner Hilary Swank in You're Not You.

The Phantom Of The Opera star would play a self-absorbed college student whose life is turned around when she takes a part-time job caring for a woman with motor neurone disease (Swank), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Shana Feste and Jordan Roberts have written the script, adapted from Michelle Wildgen's book. Theatre director George C Wolfe will take charge of the movie when it begins shooting in Los Angeles next month.

Hilary is co-producing the indie-drama with her 2S Films partner Molly Smith.

Emmy plays Fiona, the oldest daughter of William H Macy, in the US version of Paul Abbott's hit drama Shameless.
