Brittany Murphy lined up for The White Hotel
To be written and directed by Simon Monjack, who has previously worked on Factory Girl, the film would see Murphy as a Viennese opera singer during WWI, Empire reports.
The character turns to Sigmund Freud for help - a process which then reveals that she can see the future.
Since her appearance in the Eminem movie 8 Mile, Brittany Murphy's roles have been prolific, with parts in Sin City and upcoming sequel Sin City 2, along with Uptown Girls and Little Black Book.
Additionally, the actress has recently starred alongside Elijah Wood, perhaps best know for his role as Frodo in The Lord Of The Rings, and screen legend Robin Williams.
The three provided voices for this year's animated Christmas family movie about dancing penguins, Happy Feet.
