The packed cast of August: Osage County includes Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Abigail Breslin, Julianne Nicholson, Juliet Lewis, Sam Shepard, and Chris Cooper, and this new trailer released by The Weinstein Company shows off a little of each of them. The film’s based on Tracy Letts’ award winning play and was directed by John Wells. Letts adapted the story for the screen, and Weinstein Co is aiming for a November 8, 2013 theatrical release.
August: Osage County tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives 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. Letts’ play made its Broadway debut in December 2007 after premiering at Chicago’s legendary Steppenwolf Theatre earlier that year. It continued with a successful international run.
