An Italian source is reporting that in an interview with writer Michael Cunningham, it's rumored that he's currently working on a script for Meryl Streep. Cunningham earned the Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Hours, a film adaptation of which of course starred Meryl, Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore. Screenplay credits for Cunningham include A Home at the End of the World and Evening, the latter of which saw Meryl's involvement with a small supporting role in 2007.
In the translated version that I've linked, Cunningham suggests that the film revolves around "a separated woman with two children who cannot keep secret her alcoholism." Baity much? With filming of Into the Woods set for this fall and The Homesman apparently wrapped, we could expect filming to begin no sooner than 2014. Considering that Cunningham is still working on the script, were the project to come to fruition, it may be even longer. If it's ready by even early to mid 2014 however, it's certainly possible to expect filming to start not long after, which would make a 2015 release reasonable. This of course assuming the article is legitimate and everything else works out. I wonder from what source Cunningham may be adapting the screenplay. Were it an original, it would be his first. We'll have to wait and see what other news, if any, we get about this potential project.
