Washington: Katie Holmes has maintained a busy schedule since filing for divorce from Tom Cruise last week.

And she’s not showing any signs of slowing down as she shifts her career into a higher gear.

Next week, the 33-year-old is due to begin production on a new film, Molly, which she co-wrote and is co-producing.

A source told People magazine, that the plot of the movie follows the life of a single mother and her daughter.

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 ‘Dawson Creek’ 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 for ‘Responsible Adults’, a romantic comedy about a man (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 and 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,” the source added.

Holmes is seeking sole custody of their 6-year-old daughter.
