Julianne Moore

Fresh off winning an Oscar for her stirring performance in Still Alice, the wonderful Julianne Moore has lined up her next project. Variety reports the Boogie Nights star is in talks to lead Can You Ever Forgive Me, an adaptation of Lee Israel's 2008 memoir of the same name that's set up at Fox Searchlight. The story certainly sounds different as it follows Israel's real-life exploits as a respected biographer who fell on hard times and began creating counterfeit letters "written" by deceased authors and celebrities in order to sell them just so she could pay her rent. However, the forgeries raised some eyebrows, so she changed her game.

Israel decided to steal the actual letters from library archives and sell them through an ex-con she met at a bar, all while the FBI is getting close to tracking her down. Enough Said director Nicole Holofcener will write and direct the film, which sounds like quite the different project for the filmmaker who also delivered Friends with Money and Please Give, not to mention episodes of "Parks & Recreation" and "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." Is there a chance there could be a bit of a comedy in the story? It certainly lends itself to some potentially funny moments, but we'll have to wait and see.

Does anyone remember when Julianne Moore worked on "As The World Turns?" She pulled double duty when her character's evil twin made her appearance. Look at her now! 🙂
