New pics from the set of "The Papers"

Some eager fans evidently had their phones at the ready on the set of The Papers today, as a few new shots of Meryl were tweeted:

Filming will be entering its third month next week.  I imagine they'll be wrapping by the third week in August which will leave just four months for completion before it hits theaters in a limited release.  Spielberg will probably need to have it ready even sooner, as they'll have to get screeners to SAG members and the Hollywood Foreign Press, as the Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Award nominations are usually announced in early December.  We know Spielberg has done it before in a short time.  He'll do it again.  


  1. I love the pics! I have such high hopes for this and will be in serious contention for Film of the Year. It's been too long. Another interesting poll would be movies that should have got a best picture nomination but didn't. Doubt? Adaptation?

    I find it astounding that for Meryl's reputation as a dramatic actress this will be only her 4th proper Drama since 1999!

  2. Meryl's a versatile actress - musicals, comedy, fantasy, drama, etc. Wish she would do more action as in River Wild...maybe one superhero or epic movie. David

  3. According to DGA permits they're wrapping on July 29th. / Alex

  4. Do you think Meryl has chances of winning the Oscars for this role ?

    1. I think she has an excellent chance at nomination. I think for her to win, her performance will need raves and the film itself will have to be absolutely fantastic. So, yes, there's a chance.
