John Wells will direct the film, which will star Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Shooting will begin in September.

Roberts will play Violet's oldest daughter, Barbara Fordham, and Breslin will play Roberts' teenaged daughter, Jean.
According to other reports, Andrea Riseborough will play Karen Weston, Juliette Lewis will play Ivy Weston, and Chris Cooper will play Charlie Aiken.
