August Osage County Official Trailer

There have been some pretty special ensemble casts so far this year and there is another one on the horizon in August Osage County.

The movie is a big screen adaptation of the Tracy Letts play of the same names and Letts herself has penned the screenplay.

While John Wells is in the director’s chair Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ewan McGregor and Abigail Breslin are all on the cast list.

Check out the first trailer for the film:

George Clooney and Grant Heslov have teamed up with Jean Doumanian, Steve Traxler and Harvey Weinstein to produce and it could well be an awards favourite but the end of the year.

A look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.
