Variety is reporting that Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place star Emily Blunt is in talks to star in Not Fade Away, a drama from Annapurna Pictures, which is being produced by her husband John Krasinski along with David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle).
Based on Rebecca Alexander’s memoir Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found, the film will tell the inspirational story of Alexander, who was born with a rare genetic mutation causing her to lose both her sight and hearing. After suffering a fall from a window aged 18, Alexander’s body was left shattered, but despite this, she went on to become a successful psychotherapist and an athlete who teaches spin classes.
Blunt and Krasinski were recently confirmed as reuniting for a sequel to Paramount Pictures’ A Quiet Place, which is set to hit theaters on May 15th 2020, while the actress is also expected to join Tom Cruise in the Edge of Tomorrow sequel Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
