Julia Roberts is continuing her endless work schedule with another film, the movie adaptation of the best selling book Eat, Pray, Love. The book, by Elizabeth Gilbert, is a spirituality memoir that follows the main character as she searches for “everything across Italy, India, and Indonesia.”
Some of the fun things that Julia gets to do are scrub a temple floor, learn a 182-verse Sanskrit chant, and meditate while mosquitoes devour her flesh. Sounds like a blast. As one critic put it, the book is “the worst in Western fetish of Eastern though and culture”. Hmm, I don’t think that’s a good thing.
The movie, set to be released in 2011, also stars sexy, sexy Javier Bardem as Julia’s love interest in the film. I am so down for some Bardem. Those two will look interesting together. She’s got a long chin, he’s got a large face… this could work.
