Meryl Streep being who she is, it’s never particularly surprising when she signs on to work with an iconic actor. But her talent is such that we’re intrigued anyway, and this week she’s signed on for two interesting new projects. One featuring one of her first-ever co-stars, and another starring a fellow Oscar nominee I can’t believe she hasn’t worked with yet.
The first is The Good House, a “darkly comic” tale that’ll reunite the Deer Hunter duo of Streep and Robert De Niro. The other is the YA adaptation The Giver, which puts her opposite Jeff Bridges for the first time in their careers. (Though they nearly ended up together in the comedy Hope Springs.) More details on both movies after the jump.
