It's "All the Same" for Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts has come onboard to be the leadstar in indie drama "We Are All the Same."

Earning Hollywood star label should not make one only look forward for big-budgeted, major film features, and Naomi Watts apparently has full understanding of it.

The beauty is reportedly attached to topline Bureau of Moving Pictures' drama "We Are All the Same", which is an adaptation of a novel by Jim Wooten, an award-winning senior correspondent for ABC News. Story tells about Gail Johnson, a white South African woman who adopted a black child with AIDS then traveled the world with the child to raise awareness about his plight.

Name to direct is still in question, but it is learned that "Hotel Rwanda" co-writer Keir Pearson is onboard to pen the script with Bureau's Andrew Meieran and Matthew Tabak producing alongside Marty Adelstein and Scott Nemes, who both are also in charge to produce "Hanna" for Focus Features.

"It's one of those passion projects that you hope you become involved in," Nemes remarked.

    I would just like to point out that "We Are All the Same" is NOT a novel. It is the true story of Nkosi Johnson's life. Just thought you would want to get your facts straight.
