Emily Blunt is in talks to join Not Fade Away, a movie from Annapurna Pictures that is based on a memoir about a courageous young woman slowly losing her sight and hearing yet wanting to live life to the fullest, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The film is produced by John Krasinski, Blunt's husband, and Allyson Seeger through their company Sunday Night. David O. Russell and Matthew Budman are also producing.

Not Fade Away, written by Lindsey Ferrentino, is based on Rebecca Alexander's life and book Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found.

Blunt is repped by CAA and The Artists Partnership.
