London: Oprah Winfrey is set to return to the big screen with Oscar-winners Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep in a new comedy movie.

The TV host, who was herself nominated for an Academy Award for her role in 1985’s ‘The Color Purple’, will appear in a currently-untitled new comedy created by ‘Sex and The City’ writer Michael Patrick King, a news daily reports.

The film is about a home-shopping TV channel, in which the three ladies will "make their way through the maze of mania that surrounds marketing, marriages and the media," according to a statement from the Universal film studio.

The role will be Winfrey’s first onscreen part since 1999’s ‘Beloved’.
