Streep in South Africa for "The Giver"
News is out from Cape Town that Meryl is in town filming the upcoming adaptation of The Giver. She was apparently spotted sipping a Viognier (a white I've yet to try) at her hotel. I had thought that Meryl may have been able to shoot her scenes in London since she has been on location filming Into the Woods, but evidently not. It actually makes more sense for her to film on the main set, as her role as the Chief Elder in The Giver requires a scene with most of the cast and likely many extras, which I imagine would be difficult to film separately. Her scene is likely going to be quite small, however, so I imagine she wouldn't be in South Africa much longer than a week.
