After seeing Meryl Streep’s mesmerizing portrayal as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, it has me even more excited and proud to costar with her.Director Wells added, in the same tone:
I’m delighted and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to direct Meryl and Julia in this magnificent piece written by Tracy Letts. Meryl’s extraordinary body of work made her the only conceivable choice to play Violet. Coupled with Julia’s effortless mastery of every role she undertakes and her fearlessness as an actress, I’m confident this first ever collaboration with Meryl and Julia will produce an exciting and moving film.No release date has been given for the film, but principal photography has been set to shoot this fall for an autumn 2013 possibly release. I’m sure you already know that Streep, who recently won the BAFTA for best actress is favorite to win her third Oscar, while Roberts will next be seen as the evil queen in Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror.
