Katie Holmes is set to star in the feature film adaptation of Rhonda Byrne’s best-selling 2006 self-help book “The Secret” for Covert Media.
Holmes will play a hard-working young widow with three children who hires a handyman to fix her house during a terrible storm.
As the handyman grows closer to the family, he shares his philosophy of believing in the power of the universe to deliver what we wants.
The widow soon realizes he carries a secret connection to her past. Bekah Brunstetter (“This Is Us”), Rick Parks (“Ever After”) and Tennant have co-written the screenplay.
Andy Tennent (“Hitch,” “Sweet Home Alabama”) helms the film Paul Hanso and Robert Cort will produce.
