Katie Holmes Going Back to Work on Film About Single Mom
By Mary Green and Alison Schwartz
From art-museum outings with 6-year-old daughter Suri to a guest appearance on "Project Runway" – and a little ice cream in between – Katie Holmes has maintained a busy schedule since filing for divorce from Tom Cruise last week.
And she's not slowing down as she shifts her career into a higher gear.
Next week, Holmes, 33, is due to begin production on a new film, "Molly," which she co-wrote and is co-producing. In a case of life imitating art, the plot follows the life of a single mother and her daughter, according to a source. (Holmes is seeking sole legal custody of Suri.)
Filming is scheduled to last until about August in New York City, where Holmes recently moved into a new three-bedroom apartment with Suri.
The actress, who wrapped a modern film retelling of Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull" in May, is then due on set in the fall to shoot "Responsible Adults," a romantic comedy about a guy (Chace Crawford) who discovers that his crush was his babysitter 15 years earlier.
She's also planning her first-ever show at New York's Fashion Week in the fall for her clothing line, Holmes & Yang.
Amid her jam-packed schedule, Holmes and Cruise's lawyers are currently working on a divorce settlement between the two stars.
"Neither of them wants this to be hashed out in public," a source told PEOPLE.
