Paramount Pictures is about to develop a film feature based on Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir titled "Eat, Pray, Love."
Another potential dramatic picture is about to come up under Paramount Pictures. Variety reported that the giant company has successfully optioned rights to a memoir written by Elizabeth Gilbert to bring it into film feature.
Entitled "Eat, Pray, Love" just like the book's title, the project will be developed as a possible starring vehicle for Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts with "Nip/Tuck" creator Ryan Murphy to both write and direct. Meanwhile, Brad Pitt is set to produce alongside Dede Gardner via his Plan B production company.
As for the premise, the movie will likely to closely follow the memoir which tells about Gilbert's dreamlike life, only that she later came to realization that it wasn't the life she exactly wanted, leading her to embark on a journey of self-discovery around the globe.
