Meryl Streep, James Gandolfini and Philip Seymour Hoffman may team up with Mike Nichols-on his drama "Great Hope Springs" says Vulture.

Jeff Bridges was previously reported as being set to play the husband, but the deal didn't ultimately happen.

Nichols directs from a script by Vanessa Taylor,
Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Guymon Casady and Steve Tisch are producing. The project is aiming for filming to get underway in March.
