Oprah's Unauthorized Biography to Become TV Movie
Oprah Winfrey's unauthorized biography by Kitty Kelley caused quite a stir when it hit bookstores, and now it's coming to TV.
The book titled Oprah is being made into a TV movie, and author Kelley is excited that movie-maker Larry Thompson is connected to the project. She said, “Few Hollywood filmmakers are as experienced as [movie maker] Larry Thompson at understanding and dramatically exploring the emotional complexities of famous people. ... That's why I was pleased that he chose my book upon which to base his movie. Compelling biographies of great people must separate myth from fact and hype from truth.”
“Oprah Winfrey's fascinating journey from rural Mississippi to the World Stage is packed with simple truths and complicated personalities,” said Thompson. “Kitty Kelley's extensively researched book offers us the factual foundation to frame our cinematic portrait of this powerful and beloved Icon. Casting someone to play Oprah will be the real challenge. We are planning to audition both known and unknown actresses.”
