We're glad to see this is finally going to happen! Been a looooong time coming!
Way back in October 2010, we heard that Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts were in talks to star in a film version of Pulitzer/Tony-award winning play August: Osage County!
For those who haven't seen the play, it revolves around a grieving mother and daughter who mercilessly argue with each other, following the death of the family's patriarch.
Now, Weinstein Company executive David Glasser is saying that the film may start shooting THIS September, in hopes of wrapping production by the end of 2012!
If all goes according to plan, the film will be in Oscar contention during the 2013 awards season…and we have a feeling it'll DESTROY the competition!
What do U think? Are U excited to finally see an August: Osage County film? Do U think Meryl and Julia are right for the roles???
