Meryl Streep to Romance Robert De Niro in 'Good House', Join Jeff Bridges in 'The Giver'


While it is the fourth time Streep and De Niro share the same frame, the Oscar-winning actress and Bridges will film their first movie together.

Meryl Streep has added two work commitments to her already packed schedule. According to reports from Deadline, the Julia Child depicter in cooking movie "Julie & Julia" has landed a role in "The Good House" and "The Giver", both of which are feature adaptations of novels.

In "The Good House", Oscar-winning Streep will reteam with Robert De Niro after starring together in 1978's "The Deer Hunter", 1984's romantic tale "Falling in Love" and 1996's "Marvin's Room". She will play Hildy Good, a New England realtor and not-so-recovering alcoholic who rekindles an old flame with De Niro's Frank Getchell.

Adapted from Ann Leary's bestseller, the movie will have Pulitzer Prize-winning Michael Cunningham as its scribe. Jane Rosenthal, Aaron Ryder and Karen Lunder will produce, with Berry Welsh set to executive produce. Search for director is currently underway.

Meanwhile, in "The Giver", Streep will join forces with Jeff Bridges, who almost starred opposite her in "Hope Springs (2012)". She will portray the chief elder, the authoritarian charged with keeping order in a society that seems utopian. As for Bridges, he will be the titular character who will unlock a rebellion in a young man who emerges as threat to the chief.

The Weinstein Company and Walden Media will co-produce the adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel. Phil Noyce has been tapped to serve as director. The Wrap reports that Alexander Skarsgard and Cameron Monaghan are in talks to join the pic.
