The film adaptation is set to star Dolly Parton, according to an Instagram post by Hello Sunshine.
Dolly Parton has announced that her novel, Run, Rose, Run, will be adapted into a film by Reese Witherspoon's production company, Hello Sunshine.
The novel, which follows a young singer songwriter as she grapples with her past, impending fame and being on the run, was released in March of this year and co-written with prolific, multi-genre author, James Patterson. The novel was released alongside Parton's forty-eighth solo studio album, which has the same name.
"I can’t wait to make this dream come true with @HelloSunshine, @SonyPictures, and some of my favorite people, @JamesPattersonBooks and @ReeseWitherspoon," the country star posted to Instagram last night, alongside a photo of herself and Patterson.
Parton is set to star in the film, according to a post yesterday from Hello Sunshine.
"We're so excited to announce that we're partnering with @sonypictures on our adaptation of the New York Times best-seller 'Run Rose Run,' and that the one and only @dollyparton will star in the film," the caption reads, alongside a picture of Parton holding the book in one hand and album CD in the other.
"@RunRoseRunMovie centers on a young woman who heads to Nashville to pursue her music-making dreams," it continues. "The source of her heart-wrenching songs is a brutal secret she has tried desperately to hide, but the past she has fled is reaching out to control her future — and it may destroy everything she has worked for."
Witherspoon founded the company in 2016 with her longtime collaborator and business partner, Seth Rodsky. So far, the company has produced the multi-award winning newsroom drama The Morning Show, the Hulu adaptation of Celeste Ng's bestselling novel Little Fires Everywhere and is set to release the film for Delia Owens smash hit Where The Crawdads Sing in July, which will star Normal People's Daisy Edgar Jones.
