Ok, I know I'm a consummate pessimist, but even I have to volunteer a bit of optimism with recent news. Another article came out this evening with information on the possibility of August: Osage County moving forward. Apparently with Tracy Letts finishing the screenplay and Meryl and Julia's schedules opening up, a September shooting schedule may be feasible. This would be a perfect timeline to complete shooting and have the film edited in time for a late 2013 release! More Oscar bait for Harvey Weinstein, especially with these two ladies.
I've posted about this before, and of course I'm not getting my hopes up too much (a fine pessimist I'd be if I did), but I fucking loved this play when I saw it two years ago and if Meryl eventually plays Violet Weston, I'll literally be doing cartwheels. If a timetable for this film truly comes to fruition, and if shooting is to begin by September, we should know more rather soon I would think. Ahhhhh!
