Celebrity News: 19th April 2002 Julia Roberts To Produce Tough Call Girl Movie Julia Roberts and Sex & the City creator Darren Star are teaming up to make an unsentimental film about a prostitute. Roberts' Shoelace Productions has hired Star to adapt Tracy Quan's book Diary Of A Manhattan Call Girl: A Nancy Chan Novel. The writer promises it will be nothing like the actress' loveable Pretty Woman, in which she plays a prostitute who falls for Richard Gere, which was heavily criticized for its unrealistic portrayal of the sex workers, expounding the 'hooker with a heart of gold' cliche. <http://www.imdb.com/PeopleNews/>

The French publisher has cleverly decided to use Tracy's own image to market that edition of the book (titled "Journal d'une call-girl"). You can see it here: <http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/2845880456.08.LZZZZZZZ.jpg>. The cover photo was taken by Deborah Copaken Kogan, herself the author of "Shutterbabe."
