The first batch of production stills from “The Homesman” have been released, and five pictures of Meryl as Minister’s wife Altha Carter have been added to the image library. The career page for “The Homesman” has been updates as well with the production notes for the film. Scroll down for an excerpt.

Meryl Streep needs no praise; she’s got plenty of it. She’s one of the finest movie actors in the history of cinema, and I’m very happy to call her a friend, because to be a friend of hers is another total joy. (Tommy Lee Jones, Production Notes)

Screenwriter Wes Oliver recalled the early development of “The Homesman”, when both Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep were shooting “Hope Springs”: “They were shooting in Connecticut and we spent time with Tommy on the set. In between their scenes, we would work on The Homesman. Tommy would do a scene with Meryl, come across the street, work with us, go back across the street and jump a hundred and fifty years forward in time back into a romantic comedy. It was a remarkable achievement on his part to be able to do that. I was very impressed. And it was also helpful for us because it I think energized our writing process. We were surrounded by a film crew, and by the excitement of a film already in production.”

    Hello, i saw it this morning in Paris. I went to the first showing at 9.00 AM and I loved it. Tommy Lee JONES is a great film maker. It’s a great dramatic western and the cast is just great.
    I’m not a fan of Hilary SWANK but she is just fantastic in the role of this independant strong woman.
    Anyway I really liked this movie, Miss STREEP is a guest in it, but her character made me smile…
