Whilte it has been reported before, The Hollywood Reporter is again spreading the news that Tommy Lee Jones will be Meryl’s leading man in the upcoming “Great Hope Springs”. Maybe it’s more of a sum up since the film has been picked by Mandate Pictures at the Cannes Film Festival. Here’s the article: Tommy Lee Jones will star alongside Meryl Streep and Steve Carell in Great Hope Springs, the Mandate comedy being directed by David Frankel. The project, written by Vanessa Taylor, centers on a middle-aged couple (Streep and Jones) who after 30 years of marriage attend an intense counseling weekend to examine the marriage and sex issues that are threatening their marriage. Carell plays the famed relationship guru who tries to help the couple out once they arrive in the town of Great Hope Springs. The movie is eying an August start. Sony Pictures will release the movie domestically in fourth quarter 2012. Guymon Casady of Film 360 and Todd Black of Escape Artists are producing. Mandate president Nathan Kahane, Escape Artists’ Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will executive produce. Mandate’s Lawrence Grey will co-produce. Escape Artists’ Chris Coggins and Lance Johnson will serve as associate producers. The movie was a hot seller in Cannes, with dozens of territories already sown up. Among the sales were Alliance taking the U.K. and Spain, Wild Bunch picking up Germany and Italy, and Metropolitan taking France.
