Julia Roberts is reteaming with her Fireflies in the Garden director for Jesus Henry Christ, a feature comedy Roberts will produce via her Red Om Films.
“Christ” is based on Dennis Lee’s Student Academy Award-winning short film of the same name, and follows Henry James Hermin, a boy conceived in a petri-dish and raised by a loving, left-wing feminist. At the age of 10, he decides his mother’s love is not enough and begins to follow a trail of Post-It notes stuck around town hoping it will lead him to his biological father.
Lee is writing the new script and will direct.
Roberts is not planning to star in the movie at this time.
