Something Borrowed - Ashley Williams To Play Sandra Bullock's Ellen Roark On Broadway

Something Borrowed star Ashley Williams is to take on Sandra Bullock's role in a new theatre adaptation of John Grisham's courtroom drama A Time To Kill.

Bullock played Ellen Roark in the 1996 film version and now it's Williams' turn to tackle the role onstage in New York.

She joins a cast that includes Tom Skerritt as Lucien Wilbanks, the role Donald Sutherland portrayed in the film.

Rupert Holmes' stage adaptation of Grisham's novel will open at Broadway's John Golden Theatre on 20 October (13).

Actress Williams isn't new to the New York stage - she understudied Rachel Weisz and Gretchen Mol opposite Paul Rudd in The Shape of Things.
