Julia Roberts will produce and star in the movie adaptation of Chris Cleave’s best-selling novel, Little Bee.
The project is being developed at Amazon Studios, with actress-writer Kathleen Robertson (Murder in the First, Boss) working on the script. Deadline first broke the news.
Cleave’s 2008 book tells the story of Little Bee, who’s a young Nigerian asylum-seeker, and British magazine editor Sarah O’Rourke (Roberts).
The two meet during the oil conflict in the Niger Delta and are reunited in England several years later.
