Reese Witherspoon will produce an adaptation of J. Courtney Sullivan‘s The Engagements, a novel that won’t be published until June 11. Deadline Hollywood had the scoop:
The novel tells a deeply romantic story that follows a diamond engagement ring from the 1930s to the present, connecting five very different relationships in surprising and unexpected ways. Witherspoon might be part of an ensemble cast.
Witherspoon is already working on adaptations of Wild by Cheryl Strayed (also published by Knopf) and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (published by Crown, another Random House imprint).
