According to the Daily Mail, actress Andrea Riseborough is in the final stages of negotiations to star with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in the screen version of Tracy Letts’s prize- winning play August: Osage County. Streep and Roberts, respectively play the pill-popping matriarch Violet and her eldest daughter Barbara. Riseborough, meanwhile, is slated to play Violet’s youngest daughter, Karen, who’s likely being written younger as her stage character is notably 40 years of age. The film adaptation (which will be a condensed version of the original play considering that ran 3.5 hours) follows the women of the Weston family whose lives have splintered in many directions until their alcoholic father’s disappearance brings them back to their childhood home and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. I thoroughly enjoyed Andrea Riseborough in “Brighton Rock”, so if she gets the job, it’ll be fantastic to see her opposite Meryl.
