Universal Pictures has acquired a new untitled comedy that will star Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock and Oprah Winfrey. The film will be written and directed by Michael Patrick King the man behind the Sex and the City films and series.
Yeah, that's where it lost me.
The movie is set in and around the world of a "Home Shopping" type network and follows the characters as they make their way through the maze of mania that surrounds marketing, marriages and the media. Here is what king had to say about the film,
I came up with the idea of writing for Meryl, Sandy and Oprah, and it became so specific to them that I wanted to be sure I had interest from these ladies. I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. To have access to these women, tell them this story and hear yes was almost like a Greek mythological journey, with me going from one goddess to the next. It was humbling. They’re all unique, and the idea of writing parts that three strong women will play is such a challenge. Their body of work is beyond reproach. It’s also appealing to craft a character for Oprah to come back and play that’s not Oprah.
I could care less about this film, I was never really a big Sex In the City fan, but there is a whole audience out in the world that do care. I just don't have any interest in this film at all. Do you?
