The upcoming streaming service HBO Max has beat out over a dozen competitors and has landed the rights to Steven Soderbergh’s new comedy feature “Let Them All Talk” which was first revealed last week.
In the film, Meryl Streep plays an author who goes on a cruise with some of her friends to have some fun and heal old wounds. She’s joined by her nephew, who ends up falling for a literary agent.
Lucas Hedges has joined the cast as the nephew, while Candice Bergen and Dianne Wiest are also aboard to play Streep’s friends. Gemma Chan is also starring as the literary agent in the film which boasts a script by Deborah Eisenberg and is currently shooting in New York City.
HBO Max is set to launch in spring 2020 and this marks the service’s first major purchase. It’s not clear if the film will be a streaming-exclusive or if it will have a theatrical run first.
