Julia Roberts to Lead ‘THE BOOKSELLER’ Adaption

May 11, 2017


Julia Roberts is set to lead THE BOOKSELLER, based on the novel by Cynthia Swanson. Crystal City Entertainment has acquired the rights, which blends fantastical elements into a 1960s period drama.

Published by Harper Collins in 2015, The Bookseller is described as the following:

Nothing is as permanent as it appears…

Denver, 1962: Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional single life. She loves the bookshop she runs with her best friend, Frieda, and enjoys complete control over her day-to-day existence. She can come and go as she pleases, answering to no one. There was a man once, a doctor named Kevin, but it didn’t quite work out the way Kitty had hoped. Then the dreams begins.

Denver, 1963: Kathryn Andersson is married to Lars, the love of her life. They have beautiful children, an elegant home, and good friends. It’s everything Kitty Miller once believed she wanted– but it only exists when she sleeps.

Convinced that these dreams are simply due to her overactive imagination, Kitty enjoys her nighttime forays into this alternate world. But with each visit, the more irresistibly real Katharyn’s life becomes. Can she choose which life she wants? If so, what is the cost of staying Kitty, or becoming Kathryn?

As the lines between her worlds begin to blur, Kitty must figure out what is real and what is imagined. And how do we know where the boundary lies in our own lives?

Roberts will also produce alongside Red Om Films partners Lisa Gillan and Marisa Yeres Gill. Crystal City’s Ari Pinchot and Jonathan Rubenstein will also produce.
