According to this article by The Wrap, Meryl Streep is attached to Tommy Lee Jones’ next effort as a director. With the American Film Market just around the corner, a number of pre-sales projects have begun to circulate among buyers, including “The Homesman” with Streep and Swank part of the package, TheWrap has learned. In May it was announced that Jones would write, direct, produce and star in the period piece, which follows a pioneer, played by Jones, and a frontier woman as they escort three insane women across the American prairie. No additional cast was announced at that time. Now an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap that buyers are being presented with a pre-AFM package that includes the two A -list actresses. Swank will play the frontier woman, but it was not clear which role Streep would play. Streep also starred with Jones this year in “Hope Springs.” The complete article can be read here. Thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.

    I hope this pairing does happen again. Streep and Jones were spectacular together in Hope Springs. Thrilled at the possibility.

    Ihaven´t seen Hope Springs jet, it´ not available for purchase yet, the DVD, but if this is happening it really meand that Streep-Jones really hit off and with Hilary Swank there would be 6 Oscars put together, kind of amazing
