Dying reporter’s memoir goes to Universal — Who could play her?

A Palm Beach Post cops reporter who typed her bucket-list styled memoir on her iPhone with the one finger she still had command of in the later stages of ALS (Loud Gehrig’s Disease) has gone Hollywood before the book even comes out.

“Until I Say Goodbye” publishes, with a bang, in March. Universal has the film rights. Susan Spencer-Wendel’s story will be all over book stores, published in 25 languages — Harper is that confident in it.

She looks to be in her 50s. No, the profile of her in the Palm Beach Post leaves that detail out. With Universal shelling out $2 million for screen rights, who could play her? Sarandon and Streep, if they go older. Tomei or Bullock if they think “40s,” Jessica Chastain if they go younger.
