Julia Roberts boards workplace comedy “Second Act”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Fresh off of her turn as an evil queen in the upcoming “Mirror, Mirror,” Julia Roberts looks to continue her comedic vibe by signing on to “Second Act,” a workplace comedy currently in development at New Regency.

THR, which broke the story, says the film’s premise “centers on a woman who has never worked and is forced to take a job.”

That has shades of “Larry Crowne,” Roberts’ underwhelming collaboration with fellow A-lister Tom Hanks, though this also sounds like it has the potential to go in several different directions.

At this moment, “Second Act” doesn’t have a writer or director attached, though with Roberts’ name on the concept, it’s sure to generate a flurry of interest. Roberts appears to be having a blast in the trailer for “Mirror, Mirror,” taking a broader comedic approach to the wicked queen than the bitchy turn Charlize Theron is displaying in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Let’s see who Roberts can lure to the director’s chair for “Second Act,” which will go a long way toward revealing the expected tone and tenor of the comedy.
