Wolfe to helm Swank in ‘You’re Not You’

Drama centers on woman with fatal illness

George C. Wolfe has come on board to direct Hilary Swank in “You’re Not You,” with production starting in Los Angeles in early November.

Drama is about a woman (to be portrayed by Swank) suffering from a fatal illness, and an aimless young woman who enters her life as a caregiver.

Swank is producing through her 2S banner with co-founder Molly Smith along with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan. Alcon Entertainment is investing in the project.

Smith told Variety that the producers are currently casting young actresses for the 23-year-old caregiver role. Story, based on the first novel by Michelle Wildgen, has been adapted first by Shana Feste (“Country Strong”) and then by Jordan Roberts, who polished Alcon’s “Dolphin Tale.”

Smith and Swank have been developing “You’re Not You” for several years through 2S. “Something Borrowed,” released last year through Warner Bros., was the banner’s first produced project.

Wolfe won Tonys for directing “Angels in America: Millennium Approaches” and “Bring in ‘da Noise/Bring in ‘da Funk.” He also directed romancer “Nights in Rodanthe” for Di Novi in 2008.
