Mike Binder Goes Knitting Every "Friday Night"

"Reign Over Me" scribe Mike Binder has been tapped to write the script of family drama "The Friday Night Knitting Club" for Universal Pictures.


Heading to the opposite side of his usual fare about male relationship, "Reign Over Me" writer/director Mike Binder has given his agreement to pen for Universal Pictures' female-centered drama "The Friday Night Knitting Club", The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

An adaptation of Kathleen Jacobs' novel of the same title, the movie revolves around Georgia Walker, a single mother who pulls all her strengths to balance the demands of running a Manhattan knitting store with raising her spunky teen daughter. Her regular customers usually meet once a week to work on their latest projects and chat, but a tragedy later brings them all to look at their knitting club in a new light.

Name to direct has not yet been attached, but it is confirmed that Julia Roberts is set to play the store owner as well as to produce via her Red Om Films alongside Christine Forsyth-Peter. Meanwhile, Bradford Smith and Barbara Zitwer will both seat as the executive producers.
