Shondaland creator Shonda Rhimes is in talks to produce a movie based on online personalities known as the Dare Divas, TheWrap has learned.

Fox 2000 is in negotiations to acquire the life rights of the personalities, with Rhimes and Betsy Beers to produce under their Shondaland banner. The production company is responsible for ABC dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

The Dare Divas were formed after Sheri Hunter lost her husband. She recruited three of her friends, Angenette, Brenda and Mia, to undertake a world trip, going sky driving and race car driving in order to live life to the fullest.

Hunter is also currently working on her memoir. The Dare Diva’s Facebook page says that their mission statement is “to share our stories and be a global resource for women of all ages and nationalities, to motivate them to live daring and adventurous lives and explore their own God-given potential.”

Rhimes is returning to the big screen following a long break from movies. Her last screenwriting credit was 2004’s “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.”

She also wrote Britney Spears‘ 2002 film “Crossroads.” Rhimes’ new show “Still Star-Crossed” received an ABC pilot order from ABC in January.
