The Meryl Streep/Nancy Meyers Combo May Be Perfect

When writer/director Nancy Meyers is good, she is so good. We can thank her for bringing us Baby Boom and Father of the Bride, two of my favorite lighthearted late-'80s/early-'90s comedies. Then again, she's also responsible for What Women Want, Something's Gotta Give, and The Holiday. So, there's that.

Regardless, I am excited for her newest project, an untitled romantic comedy, largely because she's nabbed the wonderfully enigmatic Meryl Streep as her leading lady (and, as much as I enjoy Diane Keaton in some things, I'm so glad Meyers didn't get Keaton for this one!). In fact, if we're to believe the Variety article, Streep "sparked to the script penned by Meyers." Details are scant; all we know is that "Streep will play the female in a romantic triangle with two men."

Interestingly, Streep is also about to star in the Julia Child movie, Julie and Julia, directed by another famous female rom-com director: Nora Ephron. All these strong lady projects make me so happy!

I adore Nancy Meyers' films (though I enjoyed What Women Want, it's probaby my least favorite). Can't wait for her latest!

I've avoided Nancy Meyers' movies as of late, but Meryl may bring me back.

I generally love Nancy Meyers movies, especially Something's Gotta Give, the Holiday, and Father of the Bride. I have never seen Baby Boom and What Women Want is just meh.

I'm getting married soon and just recently watched Father of the Bride with my parents. My dad said it gave him nightmares :-P. I love Meryl Streep, so hopefully it will be good!
