A sad update: Julia’s mother Betty has died this 19 Feb, 2015 morning at 80. She was at St John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, CA, at the time of her passing. She was reportedly battling lung cancer.

Sending love to Jules and her family, stay strong!

Julia Roberts is set to star in the next Batman movie – but she won’t be donning a cape or latex costume.

The Oscar-winning actress has inked a deal to turn the story Miles Scott, aka Batkid, into a feature film.

The 5-year-old leukemia patient captured the world’s imagination last November when the Make-a-Wish foundation – along with thousands of volunteers (including President Obama) – helped transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day.

Miles dressed up as Batman’s mini-sidekick, Batkid, and helped the Caped Crusader with several fun missions across the city. The event went viral on social media with more than 400,000 Tweets in 117 countries from 1.84 billion users. Batkid was even awarded the key to the city by Mayor Ed Lee. 

Roberts is adapting the film from award-winning director Dana Nachman’s crowdfunded documentary, Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World. The documentary premieres Saturday at the Slamdance Film Festival. Watch a behind-the-scenes clip from the documentary below.


Some filming updates for “The secret in their eyes” are here, take a look:

  • Filming took place in Los Angeles from Jan 26 to Feb 12, 2015
  •  Julia will play a former partner of the male protagonist whose daughter has been mysteriously killed.
  • Jules’s character’s name is Jess.
  • Dean Norris has joined the cast.


Julia has been nominated for SAG Award for the second year in a row, she’s up as Best Actress in a TV Movie or Miniserie for her work in HBO’s “The Normal Heart”. Congrats to her!

Also Julia will be among the presenters at the 21st SAG Awards, executive producer Kathy Connell announced on Wednesday. The show will take place on Sunday, January 25 at the Shrine Auditorium, and will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

Julia is in negotiations to join the movie “Money Monster”, directed by Jodie Foster and another good thing is that George Clooney is starring! As ‘The Wrap’ says, the film is a financial thriller following the story of Lee Gates (Clooney), a bombastic television stock huckster, whose program (the titular “Money Monster”), and life, are taken hostage by an outraged gunman (to be played by Jack O’Connell).

Filming should begin in spring and I’m already so exited! I’ll post more news if anything else appears about it.
