According to the Hollywood Reporter, Meryl Streep May be playing Julia Child in a movie version of the famous cook’s life: Meryl Streep will be whipping up some culinary delights as legendary chef Julia Child in Columbia Pictures “Julie & Julia.” The film is an adaptation of the 2005 book by Julie Powell, “Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.” Columbia is in negotiations with Amy Adams to co-star as Powell. The film follows Powell, a government worker, who decides to cook her way through Child’s classic, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” in one year’s time out of her small Brooklyn kitchen. Powell blogs her daily experiences, gaining a loyal following along the way. Nora Ephron penned the script and is directing. Streep has starred in two films written by Ephron, 1983’s “Silkwood” and 1986’s “Heartburn.”
