Kerry Washington to adapt 'The Mothers'

Actor Kerry Washington along with Warner Bros will be producing the big-screen adaptation of Brit Bennett's debut novel 'The Mothers'.

Bennett also will write the script for the project based on her novel, which was published in October last year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The novel is set in a black community in a small suburban Southern California town where a big secret rocks the lives of several of its residents.

It explores young love, friendship and loss through a story centered on Nadia, a teen who, while grieving after her mother's suicide, starts a relationship with Luke, the pastor's son, and becomes pregnant.

The choice she makes not only affects her own life and relationships for decades to come but the lives of Luke and Nadia's best friend, Aubrey.
