Cameron Diaz Is a Sister's Keeper

Cameron Diaz Is a Sister's Keeper

The Facts:

  • Jodi Picoult's novel My Sister's Keeper is being adapted for film.
  • Cameron Diaz will star as "a former defense attorney who returns to the courtroom to defend herself and her husband when they are sued by their 13-year-old daughter for emancipation."
  • Nick Cassavetes, who directed The Notebook, will direct the project.

Ms. Diaz is one busy lady.
What with the Ashton Kutcher comedy What Happens in Vegas... and then the suspense-thriller The Box, My Sister's Keeper won't go into production for a while. Cammie's rather in demand these days, no?

The Book:
I enjoyed Picoult's Vanishing Acts, so I should probably get to reading Keeper before it comes to the big screen. Anyone read the book already? Thoughts?

I don't think Cameron Diaz is right for the part at all I would have thought Maura Tierney or Sandra Bullock or even Rachel Griffiths would be great for the part actually i think everyone they picked for the cast is so wrong... like alec baldwin being Campbell I would picture Keanu Reeves or Milo Ventimiglia they took what could have been a great movie and already ruining it with their casting choices

Ugh. I agree with you all. My sisters keeper is my favorite book of all time (closely followed/tied with PS I love you by Cecilia Ahern) Cameron is SO not the person I would have pictured for the part (just like Hilary Swank is going to ruin the story of PS I love you when it comes out as a movie)!

It's a very emotional story that will move you to tears. Cam will need to glam it down, as the mother is emotionally distant. I wonder who will play the father?

Yeah I have no idea why she's playing the mom. I loooove this book but I just don't see it as being a really good movie. I dunno, it just seems like it could be a movie of the week if they don't do a perfect job on it. Cameron makes a lot more sense as the mom's sister, actually, the kids' Aunt Suzanne. Of course that'd be a really small part if they even wrote it into the screenplay. But I think who's playing the girls is really the most important part.

I agree that Robin Wright Penn could pull off Sara. Cameron Diaz maybe as Julia, but how can she play a mother of 3?? This sounds like very poor poor casting.

I just scanned and read previouse comments.The lovely bones was my last favorate book and no i can not see Ryan Gosling as the dad?!Unless their going to make the girls seem younger than they are in the book.Love Ryan Gosling but as the dad?

I can overlook Ryan Gossling has the dad in Lovely Bones since I like him and he is totally hot.

Cameron is way to young to play the mom. It will be interesting to see how they make this a movie, knowing how the story wraps up. I will still see the movie for sure and will bring tissues for sure.

this is one of my all time favorite books and i DO NOT see cameron playing Sara. no way!! maybe julia but def not sara. i hope this adaptation is successful because i love the book so much but it's not off to a good start.

Have you guys read lovely bones? What do you think of Ryan Gossling as the dad?!
Laurg628 Laurg628 10 years
That is hands down my favorite book ever. I love Cam and hope she can pull it off but she has big shoes to fill because I do think the people who have read the book already love the characters! But I hope i hope i hope she can because i cannot wait to see it!

I've read the book and everything else jodi picoult has written- she really knows how to move you. her books are some of the rare few that I've ever cried over. My Sister's Keeper was great, just like EVERY other book of hers, and I guess I'm excited that cameron diaz is in it, because she did another book I love- In Her Shoes- and I think she did justice to the character. and if you haven't read the book, get on it!

oh mannnnn i am so madddddddd i LOVED LOVED LOVED the book. (also check out 'The Pact'). Cameron Diaz is so not the mom. The mom is like a distressed Julianne Moore or Renee Zellweger (brunette Renee though) or I could totally se Robin Wright Penn in the role. NOT CAMERON DIAZ. PLEASE NOOOOO! ugh okay. yeah i loved the book.

Buzz - Definitely read the book!! It's her best work (IMO).. a moving, surprising story every step of the way. I can't seem Cam playing the Mom either.. I pictured a stern, obsessive woman.. Cam is too goofy.. I just keep picturing her in little boys undies dancing around.. haha. I dunno, I'll see it anyways because it's an amazing book and I bet the adaptation will be great thanks to Nick Cassavettes

I really liked the book, it's one of my favorite Piccolt's. I'm not so sure about Cameron. I think she does fine in a comedy but not sure how well she will do with this, hope she will step it up!
