According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has nabbed Stephen Frear’s Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. The project was shopped to buyers at TIFF. The film is a Pathe and BBC Films presentation with the participation of Canal Plus and Cine Plus of a Qwerty Films Production. Paramount will distribute the film in the U.S., and Pathe will release the film in the U.K. and France. The film is the true story Foster Jenkins (Streep), a New York heiress and socialite who pursued her dream of becoming a great opera singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.
