Oprah to Produce Movie Adaptation of 'An American Marriage'

Back in February of this year, Oprah announced on Twitter that she was working on adapting her Book Club pick An American Marriage to the big screen.

 

Bustle is reporting that the announcement has resurfaced recently with the novel's author Tayari Jones retweeting Oprah's original tweet and clarifying her enthusiasm. All of this suggests the project is moving forward in development.

 

An American Marriage is both a suspenseful romance and an exploration of a married life in shambles, seen through the lens of letters sent back and forth between a black man falsely convicted in prison and his wife on the outside who must carry on alone while dealing with the romantic interests of a longtime friend.
