Katie Holmes is going back to work for the first time since she announced her split from Tom Cruise.

Life is imitating art for the 33-year-old actress as she is due to begin production on new film, Molly, about the life of a single mother and her daughter, which she co-wrote and is co-producing.

Their lawyers are said to be working to agree on a joint settlement as they do not want the divorce to be heard in public.
