George Clooney To Produce Pulitzer Prize Winner

Written by: FFT Webmaster | August 3rd, 2012

George Clooney and Smoke House Pictures partner Grant Heslov will produce the film adaptation of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tracy Letts. The dark comedy, which chronicles the women of the Weston Family, made its Broadway debut in 2007 and went on to win a Tony Award for Best Play. Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts will star as mother and daughter in The Weinstein Company’s upcoming film, which John Wells is directing from Letts’ adaptation. “It’s already a great cast and great material and I can’t think of anyone better than Harvey Weinstein to put this all together,” Clooney said in a statement. “It’s such a terrific group and we feel honored to help bring it to the screen.”
