It looks like Emmy Rossum is back on the rise once again. The actress was cast with something of a bit of hoopla in Joel Schumacher's "The Phantom Of The Opera," the big-screen take on the famed musical that wasn't quite the hot ticket or awards contender many thought it would be. She since landed a role on the Showtime series "Shameless," and next spring, has a juicy part as the sexy villainess of sorts in Warner Bros.' YA movie hopeful "Beautiful Creatures." And now, she's going to take care of an Oscar winner.

It looks like Emmy Rossum is back on the rise once again. The actress was cast with something of a bit of hoopla in Joel Schumacher's "The Phantom Of The Opera," the big-screen take on the famed musical that wasn't quite the hot ticket or awards contender many thought it would be. She since landed a role on the Showtime series "Shameless," and next spring, has a juicy part as the sexy villainess of sorts in Warner Bros.' YA movie hopeful "Beautiful Creatures." And now, she's going to take care of an Oscar winner.

Rossum has joined Hilary Swank in the Lou Gehrig's disease drama "You're Not You." An adaptation of Michelle Wildgen’s first novel, the story follows the relationship that develops between an ill woman (Swank) suffering from ALS (aka Lou Gehrig's Disease) and her young caregiver (Rossum).

Set to be directed by George C. Wolfe ("Nights In Rodanthe"), and penned by Shana Feste ("Country Strong") and Jordan Roberts ("A Dolphin's Tale"), we're really hoping this one isn't the manipulative weepie those credits imply it might be. Lord knows Swank could use break after a string of movies ("The Resident," "Amelia," "Conviction") that has seen the two-time Oscar winner struggling to live up to that mantle. We'll see if this one can exceed expectations. [THR]
