Uma Thurman To Play Anita Bryant

Uma Thurman is set to play anti-gay activist Anita Bryant in the biopic “Anita”.

The story follows the singer and orange juice spokeswoman who, after allowing a gay screenwriter into her home, is forced to confront her past as an anti-gay Christian crusader.

Bryant successfully campaigned to overturn a gay rights law in Florida and destroyed her show biz career in the process.

Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (“The Times of Harvey Milk”) helm from a screenplay by Chad Hodge (“The Playboy Club”). “Sex And the City” creator Darren Star, Howard Rosenman, Jeffrey Schwarz and Dennis Erdman will produce.
