Late Spalding Gray's Movie to Be Produced by Whoopi Goldberg


The actor who jumped to his death six years ago will be portrayed in a film which will also have John C. Reilly and John Leguizamo.

Actor/writer Spalding Gray's widow is keeping her late husband's legacy alive by writing a book about her time with him and a play and film based on his journals. Kathleen Russo was left devastated when Gray committed suicide by jumping off the Staten Island Ferry in New York in 2004, and she's committed to keeping her dead husband's memory alive.

Currently producing Steven Soderbergh's documentary about Gray's life, "And Everything is Going Fine", the Hollywood costume designer has big plans for 2011. She tells WENN, "There is so much work that I'm doing. There's a book for (publishers) Knoft next year and I'm doing a play based on his journals that will tour Britain, called 'There Are Stories to Tell'. It comes to Glasgow next March. It's a cast of five people that represent a part of his life - the adventurer, the journal reader, the family man, the lover and the career person."

"It will also be a film; Whoopi Goldberg is one of the producers on the film. John C. Reilly is gonna be in it, we think, as The Family Man and John Leguizamo as The Lover and Whoopi as The Career Person. Lucy Sexton and I worked on the script and we're starting to get the money together."

Sexton, who will direct the film, is married to filmmaker Stephen Daldry.
