Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo will join “Magic Mike” star Matt Bomer in “The Normal Heart”, a Ryan Murphy (“Glee”) directed adaptation of the play, set to air 2014 on HBO.

The film, beating a similar dream to classic all-star telemovie “And the Band Played On”, tells of the AIDS epidemic in New York City in the ’80s. Deadline says, “Roberts will play Emma Brookner, the paraplegic physician who treats several of the earliest victims of the disease. Ruffalo will play Ned Weeks, who witnesses first-hand the mysterious disease that has begun to claim the lives of many in his gay community and starts to seek answers. Bomer will play Felix Turner, a reporter who becomes Ned’s lover.”

The film begins production later this year in the Big Apple.
