You may watch below the first official trailer of Brain on Fire, the upcoming biography drama movie written and directed by Gerard Barrett and starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Thomas Mann, Richard Armitage, Tyler Perry, and Carrie-Anne Moss:
BRAIN ON FIRE
This is a true story.
A successful career. A romantic relationship envied by many.
But in an instant everything can change.
Based on the New York Times bestseller.
A medical mystery that destroy lives.
Love will be tested. Only a miracle can save her!
It’s not supposed to happen, be prepared when it does.
“Fresh out of journalism school and ready to embark on adult life, Susannah (Chloë Grace Moretz) already seemed to have it all: her dream job at the New York Post, supportive co-workers (Tyler Perry and Jenny Slate), a devoted boyfriend (Thomas Mann), and a loving family (Richard Armitage and Carrie-Anne Moss).
Then, almost overnight, this ingénue went from one of the Post’s most reliable reporters to an unstable, paranoid shell of her former self. Plagued by auditory hallucinations and memory loss, doctors dismissed her condition with a diagnosis of partying too hard and stress. But as her condition worsened, the stakes grew higher, and the race to find an answer became a matter of life and death.”
There’s also a film poster:(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
I’d rather watch Chloë Grace Moretz in a standalone Hit-Girl movie. But well, she’s delivering a great performance in Brain on Fire, so I may give the film a try if only to see her mastery of on-screen seizures!
Still no official US release date.
