It looks like Julia Roberts may have her next project lined up. While fans of hers can look forward to seeing her in the upcoming Snow White movie Mirror Mirror, further down the line you’ll be seeing her in a workplace comedy called Second Act.
Per the Hollywood Reporter, Roberts is on board with the film both on and off camera, as she’s set to star and produce in the comedy through her label Red Om Films. She’s partnering with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas on the project, which also has Maven Pictures set to produce.
Second Act follows a woman “who has never worked and is forced to take a job.” There’s definitely a lot of potential for a set-up like that, especially assuming Roberts is set to play the mentioned woman with zero work experience. The title works, although at quick glance, it looks a little like Sister Act.
The project is still in the early stages of development, from the sound of it. It doesn’t have a writer or a director yet but with Roberts attached, it's likely to find both soon enough. So, while we wait for more details on this project as things move forward for it, check out Roberts as the Evil Queen in Mirror Mirror in the trailer here.
