Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts will produce and star in work-place comedy 'Second Act'.

The 'Mirror Mirror' actress will lend her abilities behind the camera with production company Red Om Films alongside Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas as well as taking a leading part in the New Regency movie.

No writer or director are yet on board for the project, but it is set to tell the tale of a woman who has never worked and is forced into a position, The Hollywood Reporter claims.

Sting's wife Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray will also produce as well.

Julia has recently been making more headline roles in films, appearing in 'Eat Pray Love' last year and the poorly-received 'Larry Crowne' opposite Tom Hanks.

She will next been seen in Snow White adaptation 'Mirror Mirror' - a comedic take on the traditional fairytale - alongside Lily Collins as the leading beauty, Nathan Lane and Sean Bean.

It is not the only adaptation of the story to come out next year; 'Snow White and the Huntsman' with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron is also set to hit cinemas in 2012.
