Reese Witherspoon is to star in DAUGHTER OF THE QUEEN OF SHEBA - an adaptation of JACKI LYDEN's mother-daughter memoir.

Paramount Pictures looks likely to make the film but no start date has been set, and no director is attached.

The book is based on Lyden's memoir of growing up with a mother whom everyone labelled as crazy, but actually suffered from what is now known to be manic-depression.
