Julia Roberts Gets a Job in Second Act

Looks like Julia Roberts has caught the acting bug all over again. The “Pretty Woman” actress hasn’t done much films except for this year’s “Larry Crowne” film with Tom Hanks and even though her role as the evil queen in Tarsem Singh’s “Mirror, Mirror” isn’t coming out until March 16, 2012, Roberts has found her next role.

The actress is attached to produce and star in “Second Act”, a New Regency workplace comedy project in development.

Why do I get the feeling this’ll be like a reverse “I Don’t Know How She Does It” film but that’ll actually make money?

In the film, a woman who has never worked and is forced to take a job. Roberts will produce via her Red Om Films label. Since it’s just been announced, the project currently doesn’t have a writer or director on board.

For 2012, Roberts has a couple of projects in the works including an untitled Ryan Murphy project, “Happiness Sold Separately” and three films slated for 2013 including ” TheFriday Night Knitting Club”, “A Flowering Evil” and “August: Osage County”.
