Since she became a mother, we haven’t seen quite as much of Julia Roberts as we once did. However, she’s now picked a new project she plans to star in, as Variety reports she’s attached to an adaptation of Cynthia Swanson’s The Bookseller.
The book is about Kitty Miller, a single woman in the 1960s running a bookstore with her best friend, Frieda. He hopes for marriage and a family have never quite worked out. Then she starts to have dreams about an alternate life, one where she’s a slightly different woman who’s married with kids and seems to have the life Kitty has always wanted. At first this world only exists when she dreams, but could she eventually get to the point where she could choose that existence instead?
It’s early days though as no screenwriter or director is currently attached. It’s not known either when the film might shoot.
