The Prizewinner of Defiant, Ohio: According to the Variety, DreamWorks and Revolution Studios are joining forces to make The Prizewinner of Defiant, Ohio, with Julianne Moore in line to star.

The project will mark the feature directing debut of Jane Anderson, who wrote the script and is coming off the acclaimed telepic "Normal," which starred Tom Wilkinson and Jessica Lange.

The fact-based story concerns a mother of 10 who saved her family when she entered and won a contest to think up a song for a commercial product. She then supported her kids by becoming a jingle writer in the 1950s.
