Stanley Tucci and Meryl Streep Back at it in MOMMY & ME
Actors Stanley Tucci and Meryl Streep could be teaming up again on a project with the tentative title “Mommy & Me.” Creative Arts Agency is sending the idea for the project around to several studios and at this stage the film has no writers or script yet.
The base of the project seems solid though as Tucci would be directing Streep and Tina Fey in a mother-daughter comedy. Several studios that have been presented with the project have shown interest, but Sony appears to be the top dog in the chase as they have begun snatching up several films in the female-oriented genre (such as the upcoming release “Eat Pray Love”). It is unknown if Tucci would take on a role in the film in addition to directing and producing. Tucci’s Olive Productions Company, which includes partners Steve Buscemi and Wren Arthur, will be producing the film.
Tucci and Streep have made magic on screen before, starring alongside each other in “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Julie & Julia.”
