Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman are both set to topline Miramax Film's adaptation of John Patrick Shanley's play "Doubt."

Uniting two of the finest thespians working today on one screen, filmmakers of "Doubt" have successfully enticed Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman to both star in the Miramax Film's drama project, an adaptation of the John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

Set at a Bronx Catholic School in 1964, the picture revolves around the principal of the school, nun who is a strict disciplinarian, who confronts a popular priest upon suspecting him sexually harassing a black student. Streep will play the stern headmaster and Hoffman the priest while casting is still underway for the role of a young nun caught between them.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin on December 1 this year in New York with Shanley himself both writing and directing and Scott Rudin producing. Counting "The Queen," the movie marks the fourth project the latter one has brought to Miramax, after making his overall Disney deal.
