Variety reports that Hollywood stars Julia Roberts and Richard Jenkins have signed to play in the filming of Elizabeth Gilbert's international bestseller "Eat, Pray, Love."
Directed by Ryan Murphy, the Columbia Pictures Production tells the story of the recently divorced author's search for self-discovery during a journey across Italy, India and Bali.
Roberts will play the role of Gilbert, while Jenkins appears as a Texan spiritual seeker Robert's character meets in an Indian ashram.
One third of the story takes place in Bali where the main character finds love, healing and the mentoring of an aging Balinese guru in Ubud.
One of the first-ever Hollywood feature films to be shot in Bali, filming is set to commence in the third quarter of 2009.
