Julia Roberts - HBO To Produce Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart

HBO will produce a brand new adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart.

The adaptation was first announced by The Hollywood Reporter a year ago, but it looks like it will finally be going into production later this year. The adaptation is helmed by director Ryan Murphy and will star some hefty names in the business – Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer, to name a few. So, the wait might have actually been worth it. The Normal Heart is set to premiere sometime in 2014, but, this being HBO, don’t count on any concrete dates just yet. Nevertheless, the expectations, at least on the network side of things, are pretty great: "We are so proud to be involved with this monumental project,” says HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “Ryan has assembled an extraordinary cast to bring Larry Kramer’s landmark theatrical achievement to the screen for the first time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this important film to HBO.”

At this point, not much is known about the production, other than the fact that it has some impressive names attached to it. Of course, if 2012 has taught us anything, it is that big names aren’t always a guarantee for success. But, at such an early stage, they are as close as you can get.
