Well in old news that went cold and now the fires have warmed again, two of Hollywood’s heaviest heavy weights are due to team up in the film adaption of the Tony Award Winning Play ‘August; Osage County’.
Roberts & Streep were both attached to this back in 2010 but the production cooled when scheduling became a conflict. Now all that has finally gotten sorted out and word is this September the film will shoot with the two playing a mother and daughter. John Wells (Mildred Peirce) is set to direct the film.
‘August: Osage Count’ tells of the re-uniting of a drug addicted mother (Streep) and her daughter (Roberts) when her father goes missing. Roberts character faces issues of her own in the form of a cheating husband and the estrangement to her mother.
Being financed by the Weinstein Company, should all go to plan – you can expect this film to turn up in the 2013 awards season.
