Meryl Streep to Star in Jonathan Demme Film Written by Diablo Cody

Without a word to anyone, Meryl Streep has begun a one-woman revolution in Hollywood. The 18-time Oscar nominee (and three-time winner) has steadily and tenaciously pursued projects by female screenwriters and directors. As Marian Evans noted last week in Indiewire, “Meryl Streep has quietly set the standard. Of her last eleven features, women have written and directed five, and a woman wrote the sixth. That’s no accident.”

Streep continues to lend her prestige factor and box-office pull to women behind the scenes. Her newest announced project is Ricky and the Flash, a script from Diablo Cody (JunoYoung Adult) to be directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the LambsRachel Getting Married).

The Wrap reports, “Streep would play a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune as a rock star. Decades later, she decides to be a mother again to her estranged children, one of whom is going through a rough divorce.”
