Streep, Bergen, and Wiest on "Let Them All Talk"

Entertainment Weekly released an extensive interview today of a Zoom meeting with Meryl, Candice Bergen, and Dianne Wiest. The three are starring in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh comedy for HBO Max, Let Them All Talk. 

This is by far the most detail we've had about this film. It's a bit surprising that we're getting release details (although vague) from one of the actors rather than the streaming platform. In the interview, it's suggested that the film will be released in December. First time we've had a month nailed down, although there are only two remaining in the year. 

The trio go into some nice background on their characters and what it was like filming aboard the fancy cruise ship Queen Mary 2. More interesting is how improvised much of the dialogue is apparently going to be. Writer Deborah Eisenberg would evidently give the actors a sense of the scene's outline and where it needed to end up, but the lines were not rigidly scripted. It's an interesting and fresh approach for what most of us are used to when watching film. Not that we'd always know whether or not something may have been improvised, but the fact that this is being discussed so specifically, it adds an extra bit of increased anticipation to see how it's all going to turn out. 

Sounds like they're feeling pretty good about it. It's exciting that we're going to be getting so much of Meryl in the next couple of months!


  1. Two films within weeks of each other, we deserve this! Could see her pulling off double GG noms! Hope Bergen and/or Wiest get some attention too, though, if they are worthy!

  2. Exciting to see Meryl work in this way and with actors she's never had to chance to play against before.

    I'm not sure if you've seen the movie "Gosford Park" with Maggie Smith, Helen Mirren and a starry cast but they took the same approach. The cast was given an outline of where to go with the conversations but improvised the rest!

    Since we know LTAT was made in just 13 days (Meryl's shortest shoot ever as lead?) it makes sense it took a looser approach. Also gives new meaning to the title!

    Very much looking forward to seeing this!

    1. I LOVE Gosford Park. I think I saw it twice in the theater and multiple times since. But I had no idea they did so much improvisation. The social interactions and bitchy machinations of that movie are what I ended up loving so much about Downton Abby. Thank you, Julian Fellowes.
