SAG isn’t always right. Last year, the group accurately predicted that Ben Affleck’s Argo would have a big night at the Oscars. But the year prior, SAG went with The Help over the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner, The Artist.

August: Osage County Is An Acting Tour-De-Force Led By Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts August: Osage County Is An Acting Tour-De-Force Led By Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts
Uniformly, the cast is fantastic, with Streep and Roberts serving as the expected scene-stealers. Streep, per usual, Streep, commands our attention. But it’s so much more than “here goes Streep again.” Every time she approaches a new role, she resembles a painter staring at a blank canvas, and she fills it with her inspiration.

OK, so we’re jumping the gun, but Wells’ adaptation of Terry Letts’ Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play has all of the pedigree it needs to contend. It co-stars Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney, Sam Shepard … I mean, damn.

August: Osage County Poster: Wow, That's A Lot Of Famous People August: Osage County Poster: Wow, That's A Lot Of Famous People
It's wise that they didn't try to show off their cast and ape the poster for the Broadway version, though this being a Weinstein Company production, they'll inevitably roll out the cast one by one in a series of first-looks, or whatever they can do to drum up interest. And when you've got a cast this famous, you don't really need their faces to show them off anyway

Ewan McGregor Added To The August: Osage County Cast Ewan McGregor Added To The August: Osage County Cast
The cast of John Wells in-development August: Osage County is pretty remarkable. Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Abigail Breslin, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Sam Shepard and the brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch make up the ensemble. Now they’re adding one more high-profile name, but will they finally begin filming?

Sam Shepard Joins August: Osage County In Small But Crucial Role Sam Shepard Joins August: Osage County In Small But Crucial Role
Because the main action of Tracy Letts's play August: Osage County revolves around the disappearance of family patriarch Beverly Weston, it's not much of a spoiler to tell you that's a tiny role. But Beverly gets one big monologue at the beginning of the play before the other members of his family-- namely his wife Violet and daughter Barbara-- take center stage

Benedict Cumberbatch Joins Powerhouse August: Osage County Cast Benedict Cumberbatch Joins Powerhouse August: Osage County Cast
The cast of August: Osage County was ridiculously stacked from the word "go," with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts initially signing on to play the battling mother and daughter at the heart of Tracy Letts's Pulitzer- winning play. But as the movie adaptation moves forward the cast only manages to get better and better

Production on the film, which is adapted from Tracy Letts's Pulitzer-winning play, is set to begin in Oklahoma this September, with John Wells directing a screenplay that Letts adapted himself. Yes, this movie does indeed have "Oscar" written all over it, though it's still unclear how they'll expand a play that's set within a single house

With a cast that includes Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and as recently announced, Chris Cooper, a list of producers that includes George Clooney and Grant Heslov, not to mention a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play as its source material, The Weinstein Company's film August: Osage County already has a number of great things going for it. And Juliette Lewis may be added to that list.

Chris Cooper Joins Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts In August: Osage County Chris Cooper Joins Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts In August: Osage County
Cooper's portrayal of Colonel Frank Fitts in the 1999 Academy Award winning film was so chilling that I'm certain that seeing his face will forever trigger a brief and haunting flashback of the sight of him standing out in the rain, staring into Kevin Spacey's garage. He's done great work since then, with roles in films like Adaptation., Seabiscuit and John Wells' The Company Men, the latter of which brings us closer to the topic at hand.

August: Osage County revolves around the hilariously dysfunctional Weston family. And while Streep has committed to play Violet, the pill-popping matriarch, Roberts will play her eldest daughter, Barbara, a high-strung professor. Should she sign on, Riseborough would play Karen, Violet's youngest who is engaged to a man whose lack of worth she resolutely refuses to recognize.
