Variety is reporting that Katie Holmes is set to star in a film adaptation of Rhonda Byrne’s bestselling self-help book The Secret, which has Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch) set to direct from a script by Bekah Brunstetter (This Is Us).
The movie will revolve around “a hard-working widow with three children who hires a handyman to fix her house during a terrible storm. When not doing home repairs, he shares his philosophy of believing in the power of the universe to deliver what we want.”
“I am so excited that the film version of The Secret is finally here,” said Byrne. “This movie will not only be a great thrill for The Secret fans across the planet, it’s also certain to ripple out and touch millions more people.”
Former Dawson’s Creek star Holmes will next be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky this August, and is also set to feature in the all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff Ocean’s Eight, which opens next year.
