Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro reunite for The Good House
Story by Jack Foley
MERYL Streep and Robert De Niro are to reunite for new movie The Good House.
An adaptation of Ann Leary’s darkly comic story of a small town in New England, the film will follow a woman named Hildy Good (Streep), described by Variety as an alcoholic estate agent who is also descendant of one of the Salem witches, as she reconnects with an old love interest, Frank Getchell (De Niro).
The script will be written by Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours.
The on-screen reunion between Streep and De Niro marks the fourth time they have worked together.
Perhaps most memorably, they first teamed up for The Deer Hunter in 1978 (which won five Oscars), before following that up with Falling in Love in 1984.
Their last film together was the 1996 American drama, Marvin’s Room, for which Streep won a Golden Globe.
It has now been more than 12 years since they appeared together.
