De Niro and Streep Sign Up for "First Man"Variety indicates that Robert De Niro ("Hide and Seek") and Meryl Streep ("Adaptation") will co-star in Disney's "First Man." Screenwriter Diane English will make her directorial debut on this project, which tells the story of "a Ted Turner-like mogul who puts his career on hold to run a presidential campaign for his wife. When she becomes the first woman to occupy the White House, he's suddenly faced with a significant role reversal."
When production gets underway (Mr. De Niro and Ms. Streep have rather busy schedules, obviously) it will mark the fourth time that the exceedingly acclaimed thespians have paired up. They previously worked together on "The Deer Hunter," "Falling in Love," and "Marvin's Room."
