Oprah told Collider why the the reboot and she said….

The Color Purple was a seminal moment in my life. I read the book when it came out,” I got the book and read it, in one day. And then, I went back, the next day, and bought every copy they had. I would hand the book out to everybody that I knew. I passed it around to everybody in the office. I became obsessed with the book. I moved to Chicago and I would literally walk around with a backpack filled with books because I didn’t have a book club, and I would just start a conversation with people and say, ‘Have you read The Color Purple?’ And if they hadn’t, I’d say, ‘Here, have a copy, right here.’ I was literally obsessed with it.”

Oprah did produce The Color Purple musical which debuted in 2005 and would go on to win multiple Tony Awards.

I know this movie is gonna be “LIT”!!!!

Quincy Jones, Scott Sanders will produce the upcoming Warner Bros. film alongside Oprah and Spielberg. But a far as talent goes, there are no details about casting, writers, or a director as of now.
