Tommy Lee Jones has joined the cast of Great Hope Springs. He will star alongside Meryl Streep and Steve Carell in the comedy being directed by David Frankel. Vanessa Taylor wrote the script which follows "a middle-aged couple (Streep and Jones) who after 30 years of marriage attend an intense counseling weekend to examine the marriage and sex issues that are threatening their marriage. Carell plays the famed relationship guru who tries to help the couple out once they arrive in the town of Great Hope Springs." Great Hope Springs is expected to begin filming in August, with Sony Pictures releaseing the film in 2012
The film is being produced by Guymon Casady of Film 360 and Todd Black of Escape Artists. Mandate president Nathan Kahane, Escape Artists’ Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are all serving as executive producers on the project. Mandate’s Lawrence Grey will co-produce. Escape Artists’ Chris Coggins and Lance Johnson will serve as associate producers.
I ama huge fan of Carell, so this is a film I was already excited to see. The addition off Jones to the cast, which has Streep really adds some A-list star power to the comedy. The story sounds like a lot of fun. What are your thoughts on this news?
