Julia Roberts will Eat, Pray, Love this August! :-)

As the days get closer and closer, I find myself getting more and more excited for the release of the movie adaptation of one of my favorite books, Eat Pray Love. Everyday I find myself browsing the movie’s Facebook page, which lets the anticipation build even more.

The movie will star Julia Roberts as Liz, a woman who goes in search of herself after a devastating divorce. In her quest for happiness and peace, she takes a year off to Eat, Pray and Love. Her journey takes her to Italy (where she does the eating), India (for the praying) and Indonesia (for the loving).

Suffice it to say, I can’t wait for this film to come out!!! Besides this being a film about my most favorite book, I also love the fact that Julia Roberts is playing the lead character. She has always been one of my favorite actresses and having her on this film makes it extra exciting for me.

Julia Roberts had great things to say about her role in this film. For her, it was a “great opportunity to play a complex and fascinating character.”  She likewise lauded Gilbert for taking such a remarkable journey in her quest to figure things out for herselg. As she put it, “For her to take that time for herself is what is deeply interesting and encouraging to other people. I think that’s courageous and admirable; it’s such a busy, rapid-fire world, so to try to stop and figure out what’s right for you is a good thing.”

Eat Pray Love is released by Columbia Pictures and also stars James Franco, Richard Jenkins, Viola Davis, Billy Crudup, and Javier Bardem. Directed by Ryan Murphy and produced by Dede Gardner, the film is scheduled for release on August 13, 2010 (note: this is the scheduled release date in the US.  I’m not so sure when it will be out here in Manila, but lets hope it’s REAL SOON!!!).
