Two of Hollywood's most celebrated female thespians on one screen? Yep, that's the rumor Actresses Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep are in negotiations to star in the feature film adaptation of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County, according to iamROGUE.com. The movie will roll into production and start shooting in the summer.
The play, which premiered in 2007 at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company, went on to Broadway and London as it picked up the Pulitzer for drama and the Tony for best play. The plot revolves around a family's issues before and after the death of its patriarch. Streep would take the role of the drug-addicted matriarch; Roberts would play the eldest daughter, whose estranged husband has had an affair with one of his students. These are meaty roles and who has sharper teeth to tackle this type of material than Streep and Roberts?
