The faith-based drama is based on the 2006 nonfiction best-selling book Same Kind Of Different As Me: A Modern-Day Slave, An International Art Dealer, And The Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together, which highlights the unlikely friendship between a rich white art dealer Ron Hall and former sharecropper-turned-drifter Denver Moore, Deadline.com reported.
The 45-year-old actress would fill the role of Deborah, whose purpose to serve others had brought Hall and Moore together before she gave in to cancer in 2000. The movie would be helmed by Michael Carney and produced by Mary Parent alongside Darren Moorman.
