British actress Lily Collins will star in Marti Noxon’s dark comedy “To the Bone,” with Bonnie Curtis, Julie Lynn and Karina Miller producing.

“To the Bone” is inspired by Noxon’s own struggles with anorexia. Variety reported on March 15 that she would direct from her own script.

“I’m incredibly honored to be part of such a powerful story of love, self-doubt, and the courage it takes to fight for survival. I believe this film has the potential to shine a light on something that’s becoming more prevalent within our society every day and let those suffering know they’re not alone,” said Collins.

Lynn and Curtis of Mockingbird Pictures will produce along with Miller, who is also financing through her company Sparkhouse Media. Principal photography will commence at the end of March in Los Angeles.

Sparkhouse Media is a newly launched Los Angeles-based production and finance company headed by Miller and her husband, financier Talal AlAbbar. The company currently develops, produces and finances projects for film, television and theater, with the feature division producing three to five films per year with budgets up to $30 million.

Noxon has accumulated producing and writing credits on a wide assortment of TV series, including “Mad Men,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” She’s exec producing and writing Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” and Lifetime’s “UnReal” along with serving as an executive producer on the CBS medical drama “Code Black.”

Collins’ credits include her role as Snow White in the fantasy film “Mirror Mirror” along with “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” “Stuck in Love,” “The English Teacher” and “Love, Rosie.”

Collins is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Sloane Offer. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
