Davis, Roberts Attached To “Small Great Things”

Viola Davis and Julia Roberts are attached to star in “Small Great Things,” the film adaptation of the Jodi Picoult novel which has been picked up by Amblin Partners with DreamWorks Pictures set to release it.

The story follows Ruth, a widow and baby delivery nurse who has two decades of experience caring for newborns at a Connecticut hospital.

She is told not to touch the baby of a couple who are white supremacists, and when it dies with her being the only one present, she is taken to court by the couple.

A screenwriter has yet been hired to adapt while Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will produce.
