Naomi Watts Is Jody Williams

Naomi Watts is in negotiations to headline Universal’s drama “My Name Is Jody Williams” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the true story of Jody Williams, it follows a strong-willed teacher working for a temporary employment agency who left her life in Washington to pursue an unlikely career in global activism.

Almost a decade and a half later, Williams was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for leading an international campaign to eradicate land mines.

Audrey Wells adapted the screenplay and is attached to direct.
