Entertainment One Films has acquired the North American distribution rights to director George C. Wolfes drama You’re Not You, starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank, Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel. The film is slated for a theatrical release later this year and is produced by DPP in association with Di Novi Pictures (Alison Greenspan) and 2S Films (Molly Smith and Hilary Swank).
You’re Not You centers on the relationship between Kate (Swank), a woman who has been immobilized by ALS – also known as Lou Gehrigs disease and Bec (Rossum), the aimless and self-absorbed college student she hires to be her caregiver in spite of her husbands (Duhamel) objections. What was supposed to be a part-time job instead becomes a life-changing experience for Bec as her relationship with Kate transforms her into a young woman with newly-found confidence and ambition.
In addition, You’re Not You features an all-star supporting cast including Loretta Devine, Ernie Hudson, Frances Fisher, Marcia Gay Harden, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter, Julian McMahon and Andrea Savage. With a screenplay by Jordan Roberts and Shana Feste, the film is based on the novel of the same name by Michelle Wildgen.
