Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts to star in ‘August’

Picture this: A Weinstein Company film that stars Meryl Streep as a drug addicted mother of three, opposite Julia Roberts who portrays one of the said daughters in a film directed by John Wells.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

Well lucky for you it’s very much true, as Streep and Roberts are currently in talks to star  in the film adaptation of ‘August’,  the Pulitzer and Tony award-winning play by Tracy Letts.

The film is scheduled to film next summer, and of course with Streep attached to the project it’s already being  lauded as the Weinstein Company’s comeback film;  seeing as those guys haven’t had an awards season hit in a while.
