You could call it a case of art imitating life.
Katie Holmes, who recently filed for divorce from megastar Tom Cruise, is now reportedly at work on a new film about a single mother and her daughter.
The 33-year-old is due to start production on "Molly," a project Holmes is said to have co-wrote and co-produced, next week in New York City, reports People magazine via an unnamed source. Filming is expected to continue through August.
The actress - who wrapped a modernized version of Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull" this past May - has quite a packed professional and personal calendar post-Cruise. She is also gearing up to shoot the romantic comedy "Responsible Adults" this fall, and is in the midst of planning her first-ever show at New York's Fashion Week for "Holmes & Yang," her clothing line.
Holmes filed for divorce, seeking sole custody of the couple's daughter, on June 28.
She was married to Cruise for five years.
