Renee Zellweger to star in Same Kind of Different as Me
Renee Zellweger has signed on to star in Same Kind of Different as me, the faith-based drama that Michael Carney is directing for Paramount.
Based on the 2006 nonfiction best-seller, the film will tell the story of the unlikely friendship between wealthy white art dealer Ron Hall and former sharecropper-turned-drifter Denver Moore. Zellweger will play Hall’s wife Deborah, who introduced the two men at a homeless shelter where she was volunteering.
Samuel L. Jackson was attached to play Denver Moore back in 2009, but his current involvement with the project is not clear.
