Kate Bosworth starring in Veronika Decides To Die

In what sounds like the seeds of a hardcore Girl, Interrupted, Kate Bosworth has signed on to star in the adaptation of Paulo Coelho’s novel Veronika Decides To Die.

Emily Young is directing the movie, which sees the title character (Bosworth) institutionalised after a suicide attempt. But once there, she discovers that she has a weakened heart and needs treatment or she really will die in days. The plot follows her trip back to health and how it gives her the will to live again. Sorry if that’s spoiled anything for anyone.

With a script by Larry Gross and Roberta Hanley, Young will start shooting later in the year in New York.
