Oprah To Star In Comedy By ‘Sex And The City’ Director
Oprah Winfrey is set to take on the starring role in a new film by the director of ‘Sex And The City.’
According to Deadline, Michael Patrick King’s latest film will star Oprah alongside Meryl Streep, and Sandra Bullock.
The currently untitled comedy will be produced by Scott Stuber through his ‘Stuber Pictures ‘banner and is expected to be released next fall.
Speaking on the project, King tells Deadline,
“I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. To have access to these women, tell them this story and hear yes was almost like a Greek mythological journey, with me going from one goddess to the next. It was humbling. They’re all unique, and the idea of writing parts that three strong women will play is such a challenge. Their body of work is beyond reproach. It’s also appealing to craft a character for Oprah to come back and play that’s not Oprah.”
King expects to have the script done by January.
