David Frankel will once again join forces with his The Devil Wears Prada star Meryl Streep for his upcoming film Great Hope Springs. According to THR, Springs is a comedy that will focus on a couple and their long running relationship. Who will play Streep’s significant other? That info hasn’t been released but it needs to be someone extremely talented. Jack Nicholson are you up for this?
Great Hope Springs “centers on a middle-aged couple who after thirty years of marriage attend an intense counseling weekend to examine the intimacy issues that are threatening their marriage.” The script was written by Vanessa Taylor, and was previously on The Black List.
The movie is a Mandate Pictures production and the studio expects filming to begin in August of this year. Streep is currently shooting the Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady in London. This morning we got our first look at her in the premiere role and she definitely looks the part.
After nearly 40 years on the big screen, Streep is still a busy lady. We can’t wait to see who else will join the cast. They need to bring out the big guns for this one.
What do you think of the Streep and Frankel joining forces — again?
