Sucker Punch and Sleeping Beauty star Emily Browning is in talks to play a leading role in Plush, Variety reports.
The film, from Twilight and Red Riding Hood director Catherine Hardwicke (who also co-wrote with Arty Nelson) is officially described as follows:
After losing her band mate and brother to a drug overdose, rising rock star Hayley finds herself in a downward spiral. The second album from her band Plush is received as a critical and commercial disaster. She finds new hope and friendship in Enzo, the replacement guitarist who inspires her to reach new creative heights. But soon their collaboration crosses the line sexually and Hayley, who is married with two children, retreats from Enzos advances. As Hayley slowly discovers Enzos dark and troubled history, she realizes she may have let a madman into her home and family and that her mistake may cost the lives of people closest to her.
That description marks a sharp contrast to Variety‘s take, which says that the film focuses on a psychologist who uses a supernatural ability to go inside the minds of his patients and who runs into trouble when one girl (Browning) is revealed to have the same psychic talent.
Evan Rachel Wood (who previously worked with Hardwicke in Thirteen) was previously said to be attached to the role of Hayley. It is currently unclear whether or not Browning will be replacing Wood in the role or if her part is another character altogether. Check back for updates as soon as they become available.
