Meryl Streep to Play Julia Roberts' Mom

Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep in a movie together only means a big hit at the movies.

Both stars are reportedly in talks with the The Weinstein Company to star in the big screen adaptation of the Tony-winning play August: Osage County.

According to Deadline, both actresses have already agreed on the project and now they are in the process of locking in the deal.

Streep will play Violet, the drug-addicted matriarch of the working class Weston clan and Roberts will play Barbara Fordham, the oldest daughter in the family. That sounds very interesting, especially since both ladies are amazing actresses!

They are supposed to start production sometime next summer.
