After her role as Mary Louise Wright in the TV adaptation of Big Little Lies, based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel, Meryl Streep isn’t finished with HBO just yet. Although, only technically so.
She will be starring in an HBO Max film, which actually has little to do with HBO. While they are both owned by WarnerMedia Entertainment, HBO Max is an entirely separate streaming service. So if you had any reservations about adding HBO Max to your streaming service catalogue, you will probably be more open to the idea now that Meryl Streep is slated to be a part of a project exclusive to the service.
The film, entitled Let Them All Talk, tells the story of a famous author who goes on a cruise trip with her friends to have some fun and heal old wounds. The comedy will be directed by Steven Soderbergh, whose work includes the Ocean’s trilogy, Logan Lucky, Traffic, and the Palme d'Or-winning Sex, Lies, and Videotape. Let Them All Talk features an ensemble cast of Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest, Lucas Hedges, and Gemma Chan, and shooting started in New York City in August.
