Columbia Pictures president Hannah Minghella said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter: "Shonda's unparalleled story sense - especially when it comes to stories about women forging their way in traditionally male professions - made this project irresistible.

"Shonda first explored the idea of a story about female war correspondents for television, but over the years, it's become a much bigger story and we're thrilled that she sees a way to do it on the big screen.

"She has a great take on the material and we have a consummate producer on board with Gordon and believe this will make a terrific feature film."

Rhimes started her career in movies, writing Crossroads and The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement.
