Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep will team for a fourth time in film adaptation of the darkly comic Ann Leary novel “The Good House” at FilmNation Entertainment.
Streep plays Hildy Good, a New England realtor and not-so-recovering alcoholic whose perfectly compartmentalized life starts to come apart at the seams when she forms a new friendship with Rebecca McCallister.
As Rebecca becomes the subject of town gossip, Hildy rekindles an old flame with Frank Getchell (De Niro), a blunt Yankee, who tries to un-complicate her complicated life.
“The Hours” author Michael Cunningham will adapt the book, while Jane Rosenthal, Aaron Ryder and Karen Lunder will produce.
Streep and De Niro previously starred together in 1978’s “The Deer Hunter,” 1984’s “Falling In Love” and 1996’s “Marvin’s Room”.
