Studio Exec wanted Julia Roberts Cast as Harriet Tubman

Gregory Allen Howard says he spent 25 years trying to get his film about Harriet Tubman made. The screenwriter explained in a Q&A, “When ’12 Years A Slave’ became a hit and did a couple hundred million dollars worldwide, I told my agent, ‘You can’t say this kind of story won’t make money now.’” He added, “Then ‘Black Panther’ really blew the doors open.”

Studio Exec strangely requested Julia Roberts be cast as Harriet Tubman

There were many hold ups in making the film but none more ridiculous that one studio executive suggesting that Julia Roberts play the lead. Howard reveals, “When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn’t be Harriet, the executive responded, ‘It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.’”

Tony-award winner Cynthia Erivo was cast as Tubman in “Harriet,” released earlier in November.
