We Couldn't Be More Excited About Julia Roberts' Next Project

Julia Roberts will produce and star in the upcoming feature film version of the Batkid story, Variety reported.

When The Make-A-Wish Foundation turned 5-year-old Miles Scott into a superhero and San Francisco into Gotham City for a day last November, thousands of people turned up to watch and cheer on Batkid.

This week a documentary called “Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard around the World,” directed by Dana Nachman, debuted at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Roberts’ film company, Red Om Films, is adapting the doc into a feature-length film.

It’s thrilling to me that Ms. Roberts and her team watched our film and were so moved by it that they want to dedicate their time and creative capital to make sure the widest audience possible will know and love Miles’ story and the spirit of this intimate special event that went global, as much as we do,” Nachman said, according to Variety.
