The Casting Couch

According to imdb, Meryl Streep has signed on to the just announced Mamma Mia movie! Meryl singing Abba. How great is that!??? Just saw The Devil Wears Prada and between that and her performance in A Prairie Home Companion, she just continuously proves why she's the best actress in Hollywood.

Despite the fact that recent movie musicals still do not make that much money (Moulin Rouge did not actually make that much money in its original release), and are not always transfered well (Rent), or are at best decent if not spectacular (Dreamgirls, The Producers), I'm still glad this trend is continuing, especially with Hairspray opening up this summer,and Sweeney Todd being filmed with Johnny Depp, Sacha Baron Cohen, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter with director Tim Burton. Guess they are all trying to chase Chicago's Oscar Gold.
