Mike Binder Takes Up Knitting

Mike Binder (“Reign Over Me,” “The Upside of Anger”) has been tapped to adapt Kate Jacobs’ novel “The Friday Night Knitting Club” for Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will star Julia Roberts as a single mom who juggles the demands of running a knitting store with raising her teen daughter. No director is yet attached.

Her regular customers gather once a week to work on their latest projects and chat. When a tragedy occurs, the customers are forced to realize they’ve created more than just a knitting club.
