Julia Roberts is going back to work for the first time since becoming a mother.
The 'Pretty Woman' actress will star in a trio of films, including 'The Friday Night Knitting Club'.
The film is based on a novel by Kate Jacobs about a single mother who runs a New York knitting shop where her customers meet to discuss love, life and work.
Roberts' production company Red Om will co-produce the film with Universal.
The actress - who gave birth to twins Phinnaeus and Hazel in November 2004 - is currently in Morocco shooting political drama 'Charlie Wilson's War', alongside Tom Hanks.
The actress, who is married to cameraman Danny Moder, is rumoured to be considering a role in 'Eat, Pray, Love'.
