Dakota Fanning Battles Insanity For 'Brain on Fire' Flick

Dakota Fanning holds hands with boyfriend model Jamie Strachan while out enjoying the sunny weather in SoHo, New York City on Sunday afternoon (May 18).

According to Deadline, Dakota is attached to star in Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, which is based on the memoir of the same name by Susannah Cahalan.

The book chronicles the author’s struggle with a rare disease — one day, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room, strapped to her bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records—from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory—showed psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four year old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter.
