THE HELP the Movie on Fast Track

The year’s major sleeper success, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, is being fast-tracked by producer Chris Columbus, according to Variety. Set to direct is actor-turned-director Tate Taylor.

Like Stockett, Taylor grew up in Mississippi. In fact, one of the characters in the book is based on his mother. He optioned the book before publication.

No word yet on who may star.
