Meryl Streep is set to return to the big screen as a rocker this September as she shows off her singing skills once again in Ricki and the Flash.

Ricki and the Flash

The Oscar winner is set to take on the central role of Ricki Rendazzo in the film, as she teams up with director Jonathan Demme for the first time.

Demme has brought us movies such as Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia and Rachel Getting Married during his career and it is great to see him back in the director's chair. Ricki and the Flash also marks the return of writer Diablo Cody, who has penned the screenplay for the movie.

There's only a couple of weeks to go until Rick and the Flash hits the big screen and we have an exclusive clip from the film to share with you:

Ricki and the Flash is not all about Streep as Demme has brought together a terrific supporting cast with Kevin Kline, Mamie Gummer, Audra McDonald, and Sebastian Stan all also on board.

Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family.

2015 has been a quiet movie year for Streep so far, we have only seen her in Into The Woods at the beginning of 2015, and it is already great to see her back.

If you are a Streep fan then you are in for a treat this autumn as Ricki and the Flash is the first in a couple of terrific film projects that she has on the horizon.

Ricki and the Flash is released 4th September.
