The film, directed by Oscar-nominated “RBG” filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen, will be executive produced by Imagine Documentaries’ Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.
“‘Julia’ promises to be a major independent movie event in 2021 — entertaining, revelatory and resonant for today,” Sony Pictures Classics said Friday in a statement.
Imagine Documentaries and CNN Films are producing the project with Storyville Films under the working title “Julia.” Production has begun on the film.
