Lauren Graham, Mae Whitman Adapting ‘The Royal We’ Movie

“Parenthood” stars Lauren Graham and Mae Whitman are reuniting for the movie adaptation of “The Royal We” for CBS Films.

Graham and Whitman will produce while Graham also adapts the script from the novel by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. The story follows a young American woman studying at Oxford who falls in love with Great Britain’s future king, but finds herself having second thoughts about becoming part of the royal family on the eve of the wedding of the century.

The project is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Whitman, who most recently appeared in “The DUFF” for CBS Films.

The book was released earlier this year by Grand Central Publishing. Morgan and Cocks are the creators of the fashion blog GoFugYourself.com.

Mark Ross and Alex Ginno are overseeing for CBS Films.

Graham and Whitman played mother and daughter on “Parenthood” for six seasons. They’re also well known for their other hit sitcoms, “Gilmore Girls” and “Arrested Development,” respectively.

Graham is repped by ICM Partners, John Carrabino and Hansen Jacobson. Whitman is repped by ICM Partners and Hansen Jacobson. Morgan and Cocks are repped by Brettne Bloom of The Book Group.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
