Chris Cooper is in talks to reunite with his "Adaptation" co-star Meryl Streep in "August: Osage County," an individual with knowledge of the negotiations told TheWrap.
Cooper would play the husband of one of the members of the Weston family, the squabbling clan at the heart of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
Streep is set to play the pill-addicted matriarch of the family, and Julia Roberts is on board to play one of her daughters in the film adaptation of the acidic drama.
No deal has been signed for Cooper yet, the individual said.
However, Cooper and Streep certainly have a successful track record of working together. Cooper earned an Oscar for his work as the dentally challenged orchid hunter in 2002's "Adaptation," while Streep received a nomination playing the New Yorker author who becomes obsessed with him.
Cooper was recently seen in "The Muppets" and will soon appear in Robert Redford's political thriller "The Company You Keep."
Jean Doumanian and Harvey Weinstein will produce "August: Osage County," while John Wells of "ER" fame will direct.
Variety first reported Cooper's possible involvement.
