Blake Lively Learns 'The Husband's Secret'; Janelle Monae Joins Robert Zemeckis' 'Marwencol' Remake

After her book Big Little Lies became arguably the TV event of the year on HBO, author Liane Moriarty has another project ready to be adapted, only this one for the big screen. Blake Lively will star in and exec-produce The Husband's Secret, in which she plays Cecilia Fitzpatrick, a busy wife and mom who uncovers a secret about her husband that he's been hiding for years. It forces her to realize the life she's been leading was built on lies. [Deadline]

After a killer year with Moonlight and Hidden Figures, Janelle Monae is now turning her attention to Robert Zemeckis' long-developing remake of 2010 documentary, Marwencol, which Steve Carell is set to lead. Leslie Mann and Baby Driver's Eiza Gonzalez are also aboard the heart-warming drama based on the true story of Mark Hogancamp, who builds a 1/6th scale WWII-era village with action figures and dolls as a way to recover from a violent assault. The figures represent Mark, his friends, family, and even his attackers.  [THR]
