Jodi Picoult's new novel about a lesbian couple struggling to start a family is going be made into a movie, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.
The talk show host has obtained the rights to Sing You Home, Picoult shared in a live chat on Advocate.com Tuesday. She will be producing the film with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
"I don't know anything else yet -- except that she teamed with some other well-known producers (they are currently doing How to Succeed on Broadway with Daniel Radcliffe)," she wrote. "And that she's excited. I am flying to CA tomorrow to do an interview with her which will be on her website!"
The author was responding to a question about her book My Sister's Keeper, which was made into a movie two years ago starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin. Picoult said she wasn't happy with Hollywood's handling of that adaptation.
" I was NOT okay with the changes that were made to MSK -- but that was because the director (Nick Cassavettes) lied to my face, unfortunately, after promising he'd keep the ending," she wrote.
Sing You Home debuted at number 1 on the New York Times best-seller list earlier this month.
