Emily Blunt Is In Talks to Star in Upcoming Drama 'Not Fade Away'

Emily Blunt is potentially taking on a big new role.

The 36-year-old A Quiet Place actress is in negotiations to star in the upcoming inspirational drama Not Fade Away, Variety reported on Thursday (March 21).

The film is based on Rebecca Alexander’s 2015 memoir Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found. The author was born with a rare genetic mutation called Usher syndrome type III and has been losing both her sight and hearing since she was a child. In spite of her condition, and even after falling from a window at age 18, she managed to become a psychotherapist with two masters degrees and a spin class teacher.

In addition to that potential role, Emily is also set to star in the upcoming untitled sequel to A Quiet Place.
