Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep are in talks to star in the comedy First Man, according to Variety. Diane English will make her feature directing debut on the movie which is being eyed for a 2006 production start. De Niro would play a Ted Turner-like mogul who puts his career on hold to run a presidential campaign for his wife. When she becomes the first woman to occupy the White House, he’s suddenly faced with a significant role reversal. No official statement is given yet.
