August: Osage County, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play currently on Broadway, is on its way to the screen. Tracy Letts will adapt her script, a darkly comic drama about an explosive family reunion.
No director or casting has been set at this time, although there are several juicy parts among the dysfunctional Oklahoma clan, chief among them the vicious, pill-popping matriarch Violet Weston. The role won Deanna Dunagan Best Actress awards from the Tonys and Drama Desk, and is currently played by Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons. Might I suggest Judy Davis for the movie?
