Oprah Winfrey, one of the most famous and influential persons in the world, is having her life story turned into a film.
Larry A. Thompson, acclaimed Hollywood filmmaker, is basing his life story on Oprah on the recent biography, 'Oprah', written by investigative reporter and author, Kitty Kelley.
"Oprah Winfrey's fascinating journey from rural Mississippi to the world stage is packed with simple truths and complicated personalities," said Larry Thompson.
"Kitty's extensively-researched book offers us the factual foundation to frame our cinematic portrait of this powerful and beloved Icon. Casting someone to play Oprah will be the real challenge. We are planning to audition both known and unknown actresses."Apparently the pair are searching for a network to buy the film. No word as to how Oprah feels about the film being made yet.
