FROM VARIETY

RICHARD JENKINS has signed to star opposite JULIA ROBERTS in EAT, PRAY, LOVE for COLUMBIA PICTURES.

The film, which will be directed by RYAN MURPHY, had been set up at PARAMOUNT but was put in turnaround earlier this year.

Based on the international bestseller by ELIZABETH GILBERT, the story centres on a married woman who embarks on a journey of self discovery after realizing that she’s not living the life that she genuinely desires.

RYAN MURPHY also adapted the screenplay.

RICHARD JENKINS will play a Texan who JULIA’S character befriends at an Indian ashram.

BRAD PITT and DEDE GARDNER are producing through their PLAN B shingle.

Filming begins in July and will take place in NEW YORK, ROME, BALI and India.

RICHARD has two films in the can: SCREEN GEMS’ DEAR JOHN and the indie WAITING FOR FOREVER.
