Shonda Rhimes is keeping her plate full.
"Shonda's unparalleled story sense — especially when it comes to stories about women forging their way in traditionally male professions — made this project irresistible," Columbia Pictures' president of production, Hannah Minghella, said in a statement to THR. "Shonda first explored the idea of a story about female war correspondents for television, but over the years, it's become a much bigger story and we're thrilled that she sees a way to do it on the big screen. She has a great take on the material and we have a consummate producer on board with Gordon and believe this will make a terrific feature film."
Before turning out hits like Grey's and Private Practice, Rhimes wrote film screenplays The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement and Crossroads. War Correspondents takes Rhimes back to familiar territory — one of the first TV pilots she wrote before she created Grey's Anatomy was about war correspondents but the project stalled when the Iraq War began.
