Streep, Hoffman tapped for Doubt

21 04 2007

Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman will star in the movie adaptation of John Patrick’s Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning play Doubt for Miramax Films. Shanley wrote the script and will direct the movie. The story is about a principal of a Bronx Catholic School (Streep), a nun who’s a strict disciplinarian, who makes pedophile accusations against a popular priest (Hoffman). Streep just finished work on the Gavin Hood-directed Rendition and the Robert Redford-directed Lions for Lambs, and she is preparing to start shooting on a screen adaptation of the ABBA musical Mamma Mia!. Hoffman just starred in the Sidney Lumet-directed Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead as well as alongside Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in the Mike Nichols-directed Charlie Wilson’s War. He will next work on the Charlie Kaufman-directed Synecdoche, New York, and he’s currently starring at the Public Theater in Jack Goes Boating. He will next appear on-screen this summer in Savages, which also stars Laura Linney. (Variety)
