Well this is kind of exciting. It has been reported by The Wrap, that three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme, and Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody are set to collaborate on a film project.
With no confirmation from Demme, Cody, or their reps, this all seems to be speculation but with much promise. Tentatively titled, “Ricky and the Flash,” this is what Jeff Sneider is reporting as the synopsis:
Streep would play a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune as a rock star. Decades later, she decides to be a mother again to her estranged children, one of whom is going through a rough divorce.
Universal Pictures and Fox 2000 are said to be interested in picking up the project.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
