Julia Roberts to Star in a Knitting Movie

Probably the most famous knitter in the world, Julia Roberts' new project is a Universal movie titled "The Friday Night Knitting Club", which is based on the soon-to-be-released Putnam novel of same name by Kate Jacobs. Christine Forsith-Peters and literary agent Barbara J. Zitwer will co-produce this story of a single mother (played by Roberts) who tries to raise one teenage daughter while running a NYC LYS.

The book will be released in January with a first run printing of 100,000 copies. The movie is rumored to begin production Spring/Summer 2007.

I will happily report more of this story as it unfolds.
