Dolly Parton’s novels, Run, Rose, and Run will be made into a movie by the Reese Witherspoon production company.
Run, Rose and Run were released in March this year and were co-authored by singer-songwriter Parton (76 years old) and writer James Patterson (75 years old).
In an Instagram post, Parton revealed that a book with the same title as the latest studio album will be made into a movie by Witherspoon producers Hello Sunshine and Sony Pictures.
She wrote, with a photo of herself and Patterson:
“I can’t wait to make this dream come true with @HelloSunshine, @SonyPictures, and my favorite people, @JamesPattersonBooks and @ReeseWitherspoon!”
This novel follows a young singer while he is making a name for himself, and while he is determined to escape and survive.
According to a post on Hello Sunshine’s Instagram account, Parton is reported to appear in the movie adaptation.
The caption next to the picture of Parton holding this book says: Only @dollyparton will appear in the movie!
“@RunRoseRunMovie focuses on young women heading to Nashville to pursue their music-making dreams.
“The source of her sorrowful song is the brutal secret she desperately tried to hide, but the past she escaped is reaching out to control her future-and that’s where she works. It may destroy everything that was there. “
Witherspoon founded business partners Seth Rodsky and Hello Sunshine in 2016.
The company has produced a number of popular titles, including The Morning Show (2019) and an adaptation of Celeste Ng’s novel Little Fires Everywhere.
Hello Sunshine is also responsible for adapting Delia Owens’ hit novel Where the Crawdads Sing, which will be released in July.
In addition to Ran, Rose, and Ran, Patterson has written over 200 novels, including the popular crime thriller Alex Cross series.
