Seems like this project is DEFINITELY happening!
And we could not be happier!!!
Ryan Murphy will be directing Julia Roberts & Mark Ruffalo in The Normal Heart!!
It will be based on the Tony Award winning play which tells the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s.
Roberts will play Emma Brookner, the paraplegic physician who treats several of the earliest victims of the disease. Ruffalo will play Ned Weeks, who witnesses first-hand the mysterious disease that has begun to claim the lives of many in his gay community and starts to seek answers.
The film is slated for a 2014 debut which could not come any sooner!!!
Seriously can next year come already?!?!
