Revolution picks ‘Violet’

'Sex' story editors sell therapeutic tale

Pretty Woman, meet Neurotic Woman.

Revolution Studios has paid low against midsix figures for the spec script “Shrinking Violet” for Julia Roberts’ Shoelace Prods. to produce.

Sale marks the first feature by tyro pic scribes Julie Rotenberg and Elisa Zuritsky. Spec is about a twentysomething girl who lies to her family and pretends she actually has a fulfilling relationship with a great boyfriend — when the man in question is actually just her shrink. Things get complicated when she can’t decide what would be worse news for her straitlaced family: to learn she’s in therapy or that her relationship is a fraud.

In addition to their day jobs as executive story editors on HBO’s “Sex and the City,” duo also wrote the Emmy-nommed episode “My Motherboard, Myself” for the pay cabler skein.

Roberts, who next appears in Steven Soderbergh’s “Full Frontal” will produce the pic with producing partner Deb Shindler, though she will not star.

Project’s development will be overseen by Revolution Studios Gotham-based partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.
