Reese’s Hello Sunshine production company will oversee the Apple project, which will star Roberts as a woman on the hunt for her missing husband.
Dave’s novel, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in May (2021), was recently optioned by Hello Sunshine executives and Witherspoon invited Roberts to star.
Announcing the big casting news on Thursday (December 10, 2020), Reese tweeted: “I’m working with #JuliaRoberts… and all my childhood dreams are now fulfilled! Thank you to #Laura Dave for her brilliant book (I can’t wait for everyone to read it!) and thank you to @AppleTV for making this happen!”
