    Pregnant actress Naomi Watts isn't letting motherhood slow her down. The Aussie actress will star as the title character of Jody Williams in Universal’s My Name is Jody Williams, a drama about the unlikely Nobel Peace Prize winner who lead the global campaign against land mines. Audrey Wells is attached to direct the film from a screenplay that she wrote.

    Williams’ story is of much interest since she morphed from a teacher working for a temp agency into a global activist who fought to eradicate the world of dangerous land mines. Williams was of a gruff and often controversial demeanor and is perhaps best known for referring to former President Bill Clinton as a “weenie” when he didn’t sign the land mine ban. A start date has not been determined.
