The play-to-movie jump can be ambitious, sometimes amazing and sometimes treacherous, especially when dealing with an acclaimed work. Adding to the hype around the upcoming adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Tony Award-winning August: Osage County, about a dysfunctional Midwestern family coming together after a death, is the stacked cast in this ensemble performance, from the Mighty Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts to perpetual Tumblr crush Benedict Cumberbatch to other big names like Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis and Dermot Mulroney.
Now, the film version has a poster that certainly gets “Midwest,” “dysfunctional family” and “all-star cast” across. The names of the cast appear to be falling into a house with an open roof, like a tipped hat, of a very classic American home, complete with a white picket fence and a lovely porch. The film hits theatres this November.
