Meryl Streep is in final negotiations to star in Great Hope Springs, reuniting with The Devil Wears Prada helmer David Frankel-directed comedy for Mandate Pictures. Streep has been expected since last summer to star in the Vanessa Taylor-scripted comedy about a couple that hits the rocks after 30 years of marriage. They hang their future on an intense counseling weekend. Back when Mike Nichols was eyeing the project, there were rumors that Jeff Bridges might play her mate, but they were unfounded. Mandate is still looking for her mate which shouldn’t be difficult. Who wouldn’t want to play married to Streep, even an unhappy marriage?
