From TheRoot.com:

HBO Films announced that it has acquired the rights to Rebecca Skloot’s non-fiction bestseller “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” and will develop a film for HBO based on the book. Oprah Winfrey is among the project’s executive producers and her Harpo Films production company is on board.

The book, says an HBO Films press release, “tells the true story of Henrietta Lacks, a poor black mother in Baltimore, whose cancerous cells — taken without her knowledge — enabled some of the most significant advances in 20th century medicine, but with devastating, and later liberating, effects on her family.”
