Oscar-statuette inscribers, take note: Meryl Streep might star in a new Jonathan Demme movie scripted by Diablo Cody called Ricky and the Flash. That’s ‘Streep’ with two e’s.
According to The Wrap, Streep would play “a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune in California.”
Variety added this flourish to Streep’s character: she’s apparently a rock star.
Firstly, the marriage of Cody – who won the Academy Award for Juno – and Demme – of The Silence of the Lambs fame and most recently Rachel Getting Married – is a fascinating one.
Secondly, Meryl Streep is great and should be in everything.
No studio is attached at this time, though Universal and Fox 2000 have both expressed interest, because they are not insane.
