Philip Seymour Hoffman, Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges looking to star in Great Hope Springs
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Three of the greatest actors of any generation are looking to team up in the drama GREAT HOPE SPRINGS, written by veteran TV writer Vanessa Taylor, who has worked on shows like ‘Alias’ and ‘Everwood’. If everything goes according to plan, Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges would play a couple that has been married for 30 years and decides to go on a weekend marriage counseling session to determine if they’re going to stay together or split up. Philip Seymour Hoffman is also in talks to join the film, but scheduling conflicts may keep him out.
Oscar might be the first word you think of when you read this news, but the film is billed as a dramedy, so it might take a COUPLES RETREAT turn and get a little silly. But with Streep and Bridges attached, how can you not get excited about seeing them on screen together? Let’s hope this works out and this movie gets made with this cast.
