British actress Andrea Riseborough ("W.E.") is in talks to star as Karen in the film adaptation of Tracy Letts' award-winning play "August: Osage County" says DailyMail/Baz Bamigoye.
First performed in '07 the show revolves around a family's buried pains and present conflicts after its patriarch dies. Meryl Streep would play the drug-addicted matriarch, while Julia Roberts would play the eldest daughter who is estranged from her adulterous husband.
John Wells will direct the film from a screenplay adapted by Letts.
Harvey Weinstein and Jean Doumanian will produce the pic.
