Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has used her own money to option Jodi Picoult‘s latest novel, Sing You Home.
According to Deadline, DeGeneres regards this as a “passion project.” She enlisted Storyline partners Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to produce a feature film version with her.
Sing You Home, a novel about gay rights, was released earlier this month. The video embedded above features Ellen Wilber‘s performance of Sing You Home which can be found in the book’s companion soundtrack.
