Katie Holmes Options "All We Had," About a Mother Who Sacrifices Everything
30 Jul 2014
Katie Holmes, seen on Broadway in Dead Accounts, has optioned first-time author Annie Weatherwax's novel, "All We Had," and will develop it as a vehicle for herself, according to Deadline.com.
"All We Had," set to hit shelves Aug. 5, centers on a mother and daughter who have nothing in their lives except each other. The mother sacrifices all for her daughter's chance to get accepted into a great East Coast college.
Holmes has also been seen on Broadway in All My Sons.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
