Wells plans film with Roberts & Streep

The revered screenwriter has won acclaim as the director of Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones’ new movie The Company Men and now he’s hoping to work with Hollywood’s leading ladies.

Wells tells WENN, “We’re working on an adaptation of the Broadway show August Osage County… with Tracy Letts, Meryl Streep and I think Julia Roberts wants to do it.

“Tracy and I have just started to meet, so opening it up from the stage to the screen will be the $10,000 question.”
