Not Fade Away – TBD (Pre-Production)
This next movie isn’t as concrete as the previous titles on this list, but Emily Blunt is attached to star in the drama Not Fade Away, which is based on Rebecca Alexander’s memoir Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found. According to THR, Blunt would portray Alexander, who was born with a rare genetic mutation that simultaneously took her vision and hearing, but didn’t stop her from becoming a world-renown psychotherapist and author.
First announced in March 2019, there haven’t been any developments in Not Fade Away’s production or word on who will step into the director’s chair. However, Variety reported that Lindsey Ferrentino is adapting the screenplay while David O. Russell, John Krasinski, Allyson Seeger, and Matthew Budman are all serving as producers on the project. With a story as inspiring as Rebecca Alexander’s, not to mention some of Hollywood’s heaviest hitters running things behind the scenes, hopefully there is more information in the near future.
