August: Osage County Film Updates
News about the film adaptation of Tracy Letts' Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play seems to have dropped off the map a little bit lately, but there is news once more with the announcement of two of the film's stars. Oscar winner Julia Roberts will take on the role of eldest daughter Barbara, while two-time Oscar winner (and a Best Actress Oscar nominee this year for The Iron Lady) Meryl Streep will tackle the leading role of acerbic, drug addicted Violet. The film will be directed by John Wells from a script adapted by the playwright.
