It looks like Hollywood has discovered Liane Moriarty, but let the record show that BookPage was there first!

Yesterday it was announced that Reese Witherspoon's production company had optioned Moriarty's latest, Big Little Lies, for film, in a partnership with the production company of Australian actor Nicole Kidman. Although that wasn't a total surprise to those who follow Witherspoon on Instagram

Moriarty is credited as a producer of the film. Both Kidman and Witherspoon are set to star, but which role they will play remains a mystery. My vote puts Kidman as the ethereally lovely Celeste, and Witherspoon as the sassy Madeline—or perhaps she'll go against type and play quiet single mom Jane? Either way, sounds like a winning adaptation to me. What do you think?
