Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts is soon going to make her big screen comeback as a mother with an autistic son, and the film's story will be based on Cammie McGovern's new book Eye Contact.
Julia has already bought the film rights to Cammie's novel, and the writer is convinced that the 38-year-old will do full justice to the lead role.
According to Cammie, whose own autistic childEthanis an inspiration for the book, it will be Julia's next project after she finishes her debut Broadway stage run in Three Days Of Rain.
"I think Eye Contact will be Julia's next project after she's done the play," The Sun quoted Cammie assaying.
"I hear people say whenever she takes a part she's just looking for her next Oscar but I think she'd do great justice to the lead role. It's a single mum who doesn't have a boyfriend so if you can suspend your disbelief that someone as stunning as Julia doesn't have much luck with men it'll work," she added.
Julia, who bagged the 2001 Best Actress Oscar for Erin Brockovich, last appeared on the big-screen in Ocean's Eleventwo years ago, after which she took time out to have twins Hazel and Phinnaeus with husband Danny Moder.
