The childhood favorite "Charlotte's Web" is getting a new screen take in 2006 (the original film was in 1973), and this new take will feature one of our "Santa Barbara" alums, Jane Sibbett, who once played the lovely Jane Wilson -- and the more-vivacious Roxanne.
The lively tale, about a pig named Wilbur and his efforts to avoid becoming dinner-table fare, has an amazingly all-star cast that includes Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Redford and many more. Sibbett voices Joy in the movie. It's directed by Gary Winick from a screenplay by Susannah Grant and Karey Kirkpatrick.
Sibbett lives on a farm these days and has tried her own hand at screenwriting.
