Has anyone heard of this movie that Julia Roberts is supposed to be in? I have read a few clips that she will be doing the movie, but I can't find any release dates or anything else. Just curious.

I've just typed it into the 'Internet Movie Data Base'. It doesn't say much probably because it's in pre-production. It's supposed to be out 2008.

It's based upon this book The Friday Night Knitting Club (http://www.amazon.com/Friday-Night-Knitting-Club/dp/0399154094/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-1423726-5430212?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179093069&sr=8-1).

I didn't know there was a book... I don't read much, but maybe I should read more knitting novels :teehee: . I'll have to check that one out! :happydance:

I usually check this site: http://movies.yahoo.com/mv/upcoming/. However, I didn't see it listed by title or actor.

I'm just now getting interested in knitting literature. Maybe I'll read the book before the movie comes out. I just finished a Maggie Sefton book titled A Deadly Yarn -- not the best written, but I enjoyed the fact that the yarn shop was a regular haunt of the main character.

I just finished the book. I do have to say I did NOT like the way it ended! And I also read The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. This book has others in the series. When I read knitting fiction, I feel like I'm living and breathing knitting 24/7. LOL

I'm reading 'The Shop on Blossom Street' now (bought it for 1p, thanks ebay!) I'm interested in reading the Friday Night Knitting Club though...I'd love to see any knitting novel on the big screen, but I'd probably be too busy staring at all of the yarn and stuff to concentrate on the story! :teehee:

I liked the end actaully. I don't want to "spoil" it for others, but it was a nice change from the common way these things end.
