During an episode of Variety Awards Circuit Podcast, she spoke about making the movie for the memoir, and casting for the lead role of author Lidia Yuknavitch.

“We’re casting right now,” she confirmed.

“We’ve been putting together and have been thinking about this for a really long time. I’m so stoked. It’s taken the time it’s needed. Some of these take a decade to put together. I just jump every gun in my life and start talking about stuff before they’re really relevant, but it’s more relevant than ever. Now we’re casting the movie. We’re finding our Lidia Yuknavitch,” she continued.

She also said she’s on the lookout for potential investors.

“We don’t need that much. It’s a really small movie. It’s something I would have wanted to be cast in when I was younger,” she explained.

As for whether she’d make any sort of cameo, she said: “No. There’s actually no part for me. I guess depending on who plays Lydia, I could maybe play her older sister but probably not. I keep trying to figure out a way to get in there but I don’t think so.”

Here’s a summary of the book: “From the debris of her troubled early life, Lidia Yuknavitch weaves an astonishing tale of survival. It is a life that navigates, and transcends, abuse, addiction, self-destruction and the crushing loss of a stillborn child. A kind of memoir that is also a paean to the pursuit of beauty, self-expression, desire – for men and women – and the exhilaration of swimming, The Chronology of Water lays a life bare.”
