Charlie Wilson's War, the film based on a Texas congressman who teams with a CIA operative to arm the Afghan rebels that would eventually become the Taliban, may add another big-name to its cast:
Mike Nichols and Julia Roberts are making battle plans.
The Closer director is negotiating to direct Charlie Wilson's War for Universal, with the former film's leading lady considering leaving the kids with the nanny to star.
The film already boasts a script by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin with Tom Hanks in the lead role. With star power like this, I smell Oscar! Or it may be the smell of parental neglect. Or "Julia Funk," a smell rumored to circle Julia Roberts at all times. One of those three.
