Naomi Watts is in negotiations to topline My Name Is Jody Williams, a Universal drama that Audrey Wells is attached to direct, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The screenplay by Wells tells the true story of Jody Williams, 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.
