Thompson on Hollywood

Tommy Lee Jones will play Meryl Streep's husband in Great Hope Springs, with Steve Carell playing their relationship guru.

The script from Vanessa Taylor (TV's Alias and Everwood) was on the Black List, and features a middle-aged married couple who attend a weekend intensive to fix intimacy issues threatening their marriage. David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) will direct for Mandate Pictures; Sony plans to release the film in North America in late 2012. Lionsgate is handling foreign sales.

Synopsis is below. You can also check out Streep as Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady.

Many years of marriage have left Maeve (Streep) wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband.  When she hears of a famed relationship guru (Carell) in the town of Great Hope Springs, she must persuade her sceptical husband (Jones) to get on a plane for an intense week of marriage and sex therapy. Getting there was hard enough...now shedding their bedroom hang-ups, learning some new moves and rediscovering their youthful spark is when the real adventure begins.
