Meryl Streep to Play Julia Child

Frankly, I think this is awesome.

Meryl Streep is in talks to play Julia Child in a film adaptation of Julie Powell's book Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen. Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle) will write the adaptation and will direct as well. Amy Adams is signed on to costar.

The story will follow "a frustrated temp secretary who embarks on a yearlong culinary quest to cook all 524 recipes in Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She chronicles her trials and tribulations in a blog that catches on with the food crowd."

A food blog, eh? I can't wait to go see this movie with my favorite foodie blogger, YumSugar. What do you think about this casting news?
