According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 is currently in negotiations for the life rights for the story, which follows Sheri Hunter’s struggle to overcome the loss of her husband by teaming up with friends and taking a trip around the world to seek adventure. Rhimes and partner Betsy Beers will produce the film via Shondaland.

Not much else is known about the project, but we have a feeling that Rhimes’ return to film is one you won’t want to miss.
