Look, if it has Meryl Streep in it, you can count us in.
Streep has signed on for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming film The Laundromat with Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas in early talks to join her.
The film is based on Jake Bernstein’s book Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money Networks and the Global Elite with Scott Z. Burns who worked with Soderbergh on Side Effects and Contagion, penning the screenplay.
The film is based on the Panama Papers, which were leaked documents that showed how Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm, allowed the wealthy and the connected to funnel money illegally in and around the world.
Streep’s character details are being kept under wraps but according to THR, sources describe her as being the emotional core of the movie.
While the film doesn't have a distributor yet, Netflix is reportedly eyeing it.
Streep most recently starred in The Post, which was directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the Pentagon Papers. She will be back on the big screen next in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again while Soderbergh’s latest movie venture was the Claire Foy starrer Unsane.
