My big question is what does "fall" or "later this year" mean? Also, we still don't know exactly how big Meryl's part is going to be in this pic. An autumn filming schedule could mean different things for other potential projects if Meryl were lead vs supporting. By most accounts, it sounds like she does not have the same size role as the original, which would likely result in a shorter shooting schedule for her in Croatia.
I wonder if we're ever going to hear about a network that officially picks up The Nix. If that were to get pulled together, I imagine that they'd like to get it going to allow for a release prior to May 31 next year, which would make it eligible for the Emmys. Similarly to The Papers, The Nix is very topical considering the current U.S. president and overall political climate. In fact, I think it even more so captures the zeitgeist than does The Papers, so getting it out sooner than later seems like it would maximize interest and therefore viewers.
