“August” To Oz; Whither Movie?

osagesydney200It’s nice to know that many of the original Chicago/Broadway cast of “August: Osage County” will be doing the play in Australia. It would be even nicer to know who’ll play these plum parts in the movie version. No big-screen director has been announced; nor any cast, although you can be sure Meryl Streep’s agent has been called at least once about the matriarchal part played by Deanna Dunagan (pictured). Don’t tell me that Streep, 61 next week, is too young for the character, who is 68. In Hollywood, she’s too old.
