Well, it seems Katie Holmes is already rising from the ashes of her very public divorce from Tom Cruise – the star recently stepped out of her New York home to do a guest appearance on the upcoming season of Project Runway, and shortly after, People uncovered that Holmes is working on a movie that centers around a single mother and her daughter, titled Molly.
Hmmm, you may be thinking the subject of the film sounds a little close to Holmes (see what we did there?), and you’d be right. After all, not only is Katie currently seeking sole custody of Suri, her daughter with Cruise, but she also co-wrote and will co-produce the movie. It’s quite likely she may star in it, too, although we’ve had no word on that yet.
It sounds like it could be a project Holmes has groomed for her return to acting – at least, it certainly seems like she’s trying to give her career a much-needed adrenaline shot, and this could very well be just what the doctor ordered.
Right now, little else is known about Molly, but considering Holmes is constantly being hounded by the paparazzi, who are tracking her every move, it shouldn’t be long before we have more details on this. Molly is slated to go into production in New York next month.
And onwards from that, you may be interested to know that Holmes is scheduled to star opposite Gossip Girl star Chase Crawford in the romantic comedy Responsible Adults. It’s an unlikely romance, where a 30-year-old med student starts dating a 22-year-old, but soon realizes she used to be his babysitter. Sounds interesting, and at least Holmes is bursting back onto the scene with a bit of variety, going from an intimate drama to a cheeky rom-com, and all hot on the heels of wrapping a modern-day adaptation of Anton Chekhov‘s The Seagull. Keep up the good work, Katie.
Do you think Molly will be a good move for Katie?
