Dakota Fanning Brain On Fire Movie

“Twilight” actress Dakota Fanning will star in a new movie called “Brain On Fire: My Month Of Madness.” The movie is based on a memoir by Susannah Cahalan.

Here’s a description of the memoir:

When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

The movie will be about Susannah’s rare disease that landed her in the hospital. Sounds like it’s going to be a very emotional movie.

We’ll let you know when we have more details!
