And if that doesn't win Cinematical's "Fun-Filled Post Title of the Day" then I don't know what will. No, Kate Bosworth is not offing herself anytime soon, but she will be starring in a new film called Veronika Decides to Die, based off Paulo Coelho's best-selling book. Emily Young (Kiss of Life) will direct the flick, which was adapted for the screen by Larry Gross and Roberta Hanley, with Das Films, Palm Star Entertainment and Muse Films producing. And besides, Boswoth can't die -- I mean, who would they get to play Lois Lane in Superman: Man of Steel? (If you answered "I dunno, a better actress," then we're both on the same page with regards to that one.)
In Veronika Decides to Die, Bosworth will play a woman who discovers that she only has days to live following a suicide attempt, and after recovering in a mental hospital, tries to make the best of the time she has left by falling in love and acting out a few of those "Look, I want to live!" montages set to whatever Norah Jones song is popular at the moment. Or something like that. This will mark Das Films' first project (out of 15 they currently have pending); Muse Films has produced several enjoyable indies over the years, including Buffalo 66 (God, I love that film -- what happened to you Gallo?), The Virgin Suicides and American Psycho. Veronika Decides to Die starts filming this winter in New York.
