If Meryl has truly already been approached, I imagine there's a script out there. As usual we'll have to wait for more info as to whether or not this project will actually include her. If nothing else this role would provide Meryl the opportunity to don yet another U.K. accent, having already tried her hand at Received British (The French Lieutenant's Woman, Plenty and The Iron Lady) and Irish (Dancing at Lughnasa).

Meryl Streep as Susan Boyle?
U.K. tabloid Metro revealed today that Meryl has been approached to play Susan Boyle in a film about the Scottish singer's life. I vaguely recall reading something about a possible biopic on the Britain's Got Talent songstress a while back. More recently The Guardian reported that such a film was indeed moving forward.
