It wasn’t necessarily planned this way, but Meryl Streep will follow her latest Oscar win (the first in almost 20 years) by scaling it back a little bit. As it were, she’ll star alongside Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell in Hope Springs (once known as Great Hope Springs), an elderly relationship dramedy — directed by David Frankel (Marley & Me) — in which you can probably determine who’ll play the husband to Streep‘s wife.
The first image from the film has shown up from Kinopoisk (via ThePlaylist); you can see it above. It’s not much other than, well, Streep and Jones looking old and happy, though we know that, in the film, Carell‘s relationship guide has to step in and prevent their secretly crumbling marriage from going over the edge. And, if nothing else, I’m slightly curious to see how these two play off one another in motion; when still, they don’t look all too bad.
Hope Springs opens on August 10th.
Has Hope Springs been on your to-see list?
