Focus Features (the specialty film arm of Universal) will partner with LJ Film to produce The Julia Project (working title), a $20-$25 million biographical film of Julia Mullock, an American interior designer who married the last crown prince of Korea.

According to Variety, Focus Features will retain foreign rights to the primarily English-language film. The movie is scheduled to go into production later this year and to be released in 2007. The studio had success with the international thriller The Constant Gardener last year.
