Gellar in talks for ‘Veronika’

Actress in negotiations to star in indie drama

Sarah Michelle Gellar is in final negotiations to star in the indie drama “Veronika Decides to Die.”

Story centers on a severely depressed woman who rediscovers her will to live after learning that she has only days left due to the irreparable damage done to her heart as a result of her recent suicide attempt.

Larry Gross and Roberta Hanley adapted the screenplay from Paulo Coelho’s novel.

Emily Young (“Kiss of Life”) is set to direct the project; Kate Bosworth was previously attached to star.

Sriram Das is producing.

Gellar was recently seen in ThinkFilm’s “The Air I Breathe” and can soon be seen in the Yari Film Group romantic thriller “Possession.”
