Cue that laugh: Julia Roberts will return to comedy once again, this time as both star and producer of an upcoming feature from New Regency. The production company confirmed to EW that the Oscar winner will pull double duty on the project, which she’ll produce alongside Celine Rattray, Trudie Styler, Lisa Gillan, and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. The film, which does not have a director or writer on board yet, will be about a woman (Roberts) who is forced to head into the working world despite never having held a job before in her life. In other words, a bit of a stretch for Roberts, who is as busy as ever and will soon be seen in the other Snow White movie, Mirror, Mirror.
