There’s news on the big screen adaptation of “August: Osage County” – although it’s pretty much what has been known already. Theater buffs have been curious for a while now about the cinematic fate of ÔÇťAugust: Osage County,” Tracy Letts’ 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning family drama that has been in development as a movie for several years. Now the film project – which would have Meryl Streep as pill-popping matriarch Violet Weston and Julia Roberts as her complicated adult daughter Barbara – looks to finally be taking a step forward. An executive at the Weinstein Co., which owns rights to and has been developing the movie, said that a September schedule-opening for both Streep and Roberts could allow the movie to begin shooting in the fall. The executive, Weinstein Co. COO David Glasser, said the goal was for the film to wrap production by the end of 2012 and come out in the 2013 autumn awards season. According to another person at the company who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to talk about internal matters, Letts, who had been adapting his own play for the screen, recently turned in his screenplay to the company and executives deem it close to shooting-ready. The complete article can be read at the Los Angeles Times, a second article has been published by Cinema Blend. Let’s see how this develops. Thanks to Glenn and Frank for the heads-up!
