Meryl Streep cast as Julia Child!
...or how to blog your way to a movie deal. Variety reports that Meryl Streep will play Julia Child and Amy Adams will play Julie the blogger in "Julie & Julia," with Nora Ephron directing. Is this the first blog-to-feature project? Despite my snarky comments about various Ephrons just one post below, I love the Streep-starring movie "Heartburn," which Mike Nichols directed and Ephron wrote, including many cooking references, and I wish her well with this project. I just wish Julia Child was still alive to see the stunning Streep portray her charming, gawky self. Filming will start next year.
