Well, several sources now report that Meryl's friend, Emma Thompson, is now in talks to star as P.L. Travers in Disney's upcoming film Saving Mr. Banks. From the article I've linked they indicate that Meryl put to rest rumors about her involvement in this film last month. Um, I didn't read anything in March that made it so clear cut. Tom Hanks apparently is still in talks to play Walt Disney. This role seemed sort of intriguing to me. It would've been nice to see Meryl work with Hanks. Maybe she thought one film role with an Australian accent was enough. Or maybe the script just isn't all that polished. Regardless, we must move our minds away from the possibility of seeing Meryl as Travers. I'm sure Thompson will kill it.
In other news, I plan on picking up a copy of The Iron Lady DVD on my way home from work tonight! I'm more interested in the special features than the actual movie, as I've already seen it twice in the theater. Expect another post later today or tomorrow about my thoughts on the dvd. I'll be popping it in as soon as I get a chance this evening. Woo hoo!
