This definitely sounds like something I'll be on the look out for.  Oprah, Meryl and Sandy makes for quite an interesting combination.

Hollywood is BUZZING!

Writer/director Michael Patrick King of Sex and the City fame has a new comedy in the works and it has an all star female cast like none other!

The movie is set to star Academy Award-winning actresses Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock and the wonderful Oprah Winfrey. The power trio have already committed to the untitled project, with a rumored plot to revolve around working at the Home Shopping network.  King met with producer Scott Stuber and hammered out the idea with the three leading ladies in mind.

"I came up with the idea of writing for Meryl, Sandy and Oprah, and it became so specific to them that I wanted to be sure I had interest from these ladies," King told Deadline. "I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. To have access to these women, tell them this story and hear yes was almost like a Greek mythological journey, with me going from one goddess to the next. It was humbling."

King is currently working on the script and expects to have it completed by January, with production scheduled to begin in the late summer or fall of 2011.

  1. I would certainly pay good money to see that movie. Besides being an awesome talk show host, Oprah is a great actress. It's been so long since we've seen in her in a movie and I can't wait for this come out.
