*Guess who’s getting back to the big screen and will be starring in a comedy written by “Sex and the City’s” producer, Michael Patrick King. Yep, none other than Ms. Oprah Winfrey.
The flick will also star Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock.
When asked about putting together the film, King told deadline.com that he was looking to aim high.
“I came up with the idea of writing for Meryl, Sandy and Oprah, and it became so specific to them that I wanted to be sure I had interest from these ladies. I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. To have access to these women, tell them this story and hear yes was almost like a Greek mythological journey, with me going from one goddess to the next. It was humbling. They’re all unique, and the idea of writing parts that three strong women will play is such a challenge. Their body of work is beyond reproach. It’s also appealing to craft a character for Oprah to come back and play that’s not Oprah.”
King’s film set in the world of a Home Shopping-type network, where characters make their way through the maze of mania that surrounds marketing, marriages and the media.
