Meryl Streep to play opera legend Maria Callas

Quote:
It’s all about the music for Meryl Streep who is in talks to play opera legend Maria Callas and, elsewhere, a rock-loving mum.
Streep’s most famous musical venture to date is 2008’s ABBA-inspired rom-com Mamma Mia. But now she has two projects lined up with a musical bent.
The acclaimed actor will play Maria Callas in a HBO version of hit Broadway play Master Class by Terrence McNally. In the play, Callas is running a class for students and weaves in stories about her own life and career in the midst of her lessons.The film will be released next year.

TF's most popular actress plays TF's most popular opera diva. Poor Faye, wasn't she tied to this project for years?

According to Imdb.com , Masterclass is now in post production ...directed, written ( screenplay ) and starring Faye

Edit: Oops, I see that "funding" ran out mid production a couple years ago. It doesn't seem like Faye will get to finish her dream project :-(. Maybe she should try Kickstarter

Re: Meryl Streep to play opera legend Maria Callas

OMG! Can't wait.
Will she really sing in opera style or will she dub by using other opera singer's voice? No doubt the Queen can sang but in opera? Any sample of her singing opera before?

Meryl as Callas?? I don't see it. She's too old to play Callas. Jolie would be my pick.

At least Meryl has a great team of make-up specialist that can make it happen somehow. Or perhaps it's about Callas' older life.

Streep is ten years older than Callas was when she died...

Like I said, make up and also technology nowadays can do anything. It's not like Meryl has horrible wrinkles on her face. She's aging gracefully and also has the elegance like what Callas was about.

Another movie where she'll overact with a wig Iron Lady 2.


When is she doing a good movie again ?

This. The last time she overacted she won an Oscar when the amazing Michelle Williams was snubbed after that fantastic performance as Marilyn Monroe.

Re: Meryl Streep to play opera legend Maria Callas

This will be an incredible challenge. I can't see how she will manage it. Master Class is about the older Callas, so maybe it could work. They could probably have someone play the younger Callas in the flashbacks.

Jolie would be awful. Seriously. No way.
