Kudrow and Ryan in The Women

MegRyan.jpgThe Women is a comedy from 1939 starring Joan Crawford about a group of women who get together to gossip, spending their days at the beauty salon and fashion shows and it's about to be remade with some big names in the cast. Meg Ryan, Lisa Kudrow, Anne Hathaway and Candice Bergan are all cast for this film that's going to be about friendship, love, loss and betrayal.

The news that Diane English will direct comes from Production Weekly who also have the rather bland plotline:

The sweet, happily-wedded Mary Haines finds her marriage in trouble when shopgirl Crystal Allen gets her hooks into Mary’s man. Naturally, this situation becomes the hot talk amongst Mary’s catty friends, especially the scandalmonger Sylvia Fowler, who has little room to talk — she finds herself on a train to Reno and headed for divorce right after Mary. But with a bit of guts and daring, Mary snatches her man right back from Crystal’s clutches.

Although the cast list looks good, the film really doesn't do anything for me to be quite honest. Interestingly though English is directing a film with Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep which reminds me of Commander in Chief. De Niro plays the business mogul husband of Streep, and he orchestrates her campaign to run for President.



I would love to see Meg Ryan doing films again, I suppose this is a good choice to make a comeback not being the only major star of the film.

I love Streep and De Niro together since I saw them together for the first time in The Deer Hunter. Have you seen them in Falling in Love? Not sure if that was a straight to video film, but it was quite good too.
