Shonda Rhimes, the genius mind behind television hits including “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Private Practice” and her latest, “Scandal,” is returning to her screenwriting roots with a new treatment of “War Correspondents.” According to The Hollywood Reporter on July 29, Rhimes is working on the project for Sony’s Columbia Pictures.
The film will focus on female war correspondents, a storyline that should be a no-brainer for her given her penchant for developing believable, strong female characters working in traditionally male jobs.
Other film writing credits for Rhimes include “Crossroads” and “The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement.” She will be teaming with her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers as executive producer and Mark Gordon.
The trio first conceived of the “War Correspondents” idea as another television series prior to “Grey’s Anatomy” but the plan was shelved when the war in Iraq began.
There is no information available yet regarding a projected release date. Check back for updates as news becomes available.
