Julia Roberts Is Joan Root



Oscar winner Julia Roberts is set to play the murdered wildlife conservationist Joan Root in a biopic about her that she also produces in association with Working Title Films.

It's been quite a long time since filmgoers saw Julia Roberts stunningly play a real-life character in "Erin Bronkovich", but need not weary, folks for she soon will step once again into the area in her new project.

Yes, the Oscar-winning actress is said to have reunited with Working Title Films to develop together a movie about wildlife conservationist Joan Root, who got murdered earlier this year in her Kenyan home. Here, she will take double duty as the leadstar and producer, the latter being conducted via her Red Om Films.

Inspired by Vanity Fair article "A Flowering Evil", the as-yet-titled picture will depict Root's earlier years during which she made a number of acclaimed documentaries around the globe with her husband. "Finding Neverland" scribe David Magee has been hired to pen the script with Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner accompanying Roberts on the producer's seat.
