Julia Robert's Newest Film To Focus on Silence

His book and movie script titled simply SHHHH! has been picked up by Touchstone Pictures for what is reportedly a six figure price tag that has the brothers of Gethsemani planning a new grape orchard and goat herd.

We have yet to find Brother Gabriel's email address, but sources close to the monastery say that one of the monks who was just given permission to live a hermits life in Thomas Merton's old cabin, will occassionally provide three word sentences to outsiders if absolutely necessary.
