Julia Roberts The Normal Heart

GLEE creator Ryan Murphy is turning the play, The Normal Heart, into a feature film!

The groundbreaking play was one of the first to address AIDS and American healthcare issues.

The story is summed up a little like this…

After a strange, new illness breaks out — one that only seems to target a specific group of people — a group of friends band together to fight the truth from being buried by the doctors and the press.

Yes! We love it!

In talks to star is none other than Julia Roberts! AND Mark Ruffalo!

Murphy confirmed the rumors in a recent interview:

The Normal Heart is the thing that I'm going to do next. I optioned it and there's a brilliant script that Larry Kramer wrote and I'm going to do that with Mark Ruffalo and maybe Julie Roberts. I believe in that play.

We really cannot wait for this to be made. We believe in it too!

    HollyWood is still considering using this Box Office Poison … ? She can't hold a film…'Memba Charlie Crown, or WHATEVER it is called ? Her haggy face cannot be labeled 'America's sweetheart anymore…Move on, ya Hag !

    Expression on her face is of just letting go of a big fat fart….WHAT ? ! HollyWood people fart….they may think their shit don't stink, but their farts give them away !

    I'm actually really sick of Julia Roberts. The last few years the only things I've read about her are all the movies she's turned down becuase they didn't offer enough money. Who the hell does she think she is? She isn't Sandra Bullock!

    Oh time can be so unkind. Granny

    Would you like a carrot and some hay?

    It's like she got stuck in the late 1970's. She looks like she's on her way to Woodstock. Hairy armpits and all.

    She is a huge asshole. For how many years did she give her brother, the one who got her career going, the silent treatment? F her.

    NO. No no no no no!! And not to Julia Roberts. I think they should have stuck with Ellen Barkin because she was phenomenal in the Broadway run, but…WHO IN THE WORLD LET RYAN MURPHY NEAR THIS? Absolutely not. Ugh. What a poor decision to let this man anywhere near production.

    Roberts is so terribly, horribly wrong for the part. She could single handedly sink the piece, and its a piece worth preserving. Personally, however, I couldnt sit through it with her in the role. If they were smart, theyd use the current broadway cast. It has some gems like Lee Pace and a terrific Ellen Barkin.
