Streep joins Adam McKay's Netflix comedy "Don't Look Up"

Several sources reported yesterday that Meryl has signed on to co-star in Adam McKay's upcoming Netflix comedy, Don't Look Up. It's been in the works for some time, with Jennifer Lawrence having previously been announced as a lead. With the updated casting news, however, we've learned that Leonardo DiCaprio will likely be the other lead, as the films blurb reads:

...(the film) follows two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an impending asteroid that could destroy the planet. Lawrence and DiCaprio are expected to play the two astronomers...

This is pretty exciting news. McKay received a lot of acclaim for 2015's The Big Short. It's an amazing cast, and the only thing that remains to be seen is how much each of them will be in it. The tea on the AwardsWorthy forums is that Meryl will be portraying the president of the United States. Sounds like it could be more than a mere cameo.

Sources have indicated that the movie is already set to begin filming in Boston on November 19, which means we're likely to see a late 2021 release. I'd been wondering if Meryl would participate in filming anything while the pandemic is still if full force. Apparently she's prepared to do so. Which also means that if Damien Chazelle's Babylon gets underway early next year, and if Meryl is indeed going to star as rumored, it likely won't be Covid that would keep her out.

  1. What people are talking about most seems to be the wish that Meryl and Cate will be sharing scenes together. But with such a huge cast of A-listers, we'll never know.

  2. This cast is wild! Streep, Blanchett and Lawrence - three generations of acclaimed actresses! I hope she plays the president...being described as a satire, I wonder if she'll be a President that doesn't believe in science! (What a ridiculous concept...oh wait...)

    1. How would Meryl ever be able to conjure up such a character??

  3. Sounds good on paper but not wildly thrilled Meryl will likely just have another cameo appearance. (Please prove me wrong and have her co-lead!)

    Meryl is pretty much the exception to the rule in that she's a leading lady of a certain agd who can get a huge paying audience. She should be the STAR of her projects!

    1. Some of the buzz has been that there certainly are cameo roles as expected, but that Meryl's was not one. Not lead, but not cameo. Meryl will go where the role/character is great. Even if it's not always the lead. But she usually is!

  7. Most financing sources are reluctant to take on the risk of financing equipment that they may be required to re-market one day, but are unable to move. Many of them know that a small percentage of the transactions they underwrite will not work out, requiring them to repossess and re-marketing the equipment to recover as much of their investment as possible.

  10. Technology spending for hardware, software and consulting services accounts for a significant portion of most health care providers budgets today, especially since the Obama Stimulus Plan and HITECH Act are incentivizing providers to implement electronic health records. Technology contracts generally are written by the vendors. Unfortunately, many technology contracts fall short of giving providers adequate protection and often contain hidden pitfalls and costs. Despite this fact, many providers never give these contracts to experienced health lawyers to help them negotiate better terms and protections for their high-tech investments BEFORE signing. This is a potentially costly practice. affordable electrician
