    I got to thinking……why hasn’t Meryl been working with more prolific and lauded directors as of late…..other than Frears. I’m surprised Woody Allen hasn’t written anything for her. She hasn’t worked with Steven Spielberg since A.I. I would love to see her work with Scorcese or Innaritu, etc.

    Scorsese said multiple times he would love to work with her. But they are quite different. Almodovar said he would do a film in English only to work with her. If such a film happens and it’s any good, I smell Oscar.

    I think Altman would have used a lot of Meryl had he lived longer. He was really full of praise.

    Almodóvar almost did his new film Julieta with Streep, but backed out/wasn’t comfortable with an English language film. I remember an interview where she says she wishes Scorsese were more interested in female characters from time to time because she’d love to work with him.

    But Streep seems like the type who picks roles rather than projects, if that makes sense. But who knows if Allen, PTA, the Coens, Haynes, Malick, Scorsese, Sorrentino, Tarantino et al have even called her up. Last time she worked with a major auteur was probably with Jonze (and Kaufman) on Adaptation, although she did do a voice for Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    She worked with Altman in 2006. He famously said that she was the only actor he knew who didn’t need a director or something like that.

    Streep had a negative experience making Manhattan. Streep doesn’t need great directors to be popular with critics, audiences, and award bodies.

    She won’t be working with auetors because she doesn’t like to be directed. She thinks she knows the best when the scene was good. That’s why she mostly works with hacks who are too afraid to tell Grand Streep she needs another take.

    Now you’ve done it. You’ve gone and told the truth. Her those who Stan for her want her to have everything. Be real with yourselves she’s not the bravest actress even in her youthful prime.

    A Streep and Tarentino collarboraion would be the best thing ever.

    Tarentiono is still telling people he is only doings 2 more movies (which I doubt will last, I have a feeling he will “retire” for 10 years MAX, make a tv show and maybe a book or play, and then get back to movies) and if that’s true, I have a feeling he will want to go out with a bang. A big movie nobody will ever forget. Meryl would definitely help with that. Can somebody please start a petition to get them to sworn together  now.

    that being said, I feel like they would hate each other.

    she is doing a TV show with JJ Abrams is you want to call him prolific.

    Streep’s not a fan of Tarantino. Funny he would shade Blanchett when she’s most likely to work with him under normal circumstances.

    Streep would’ve been interesting playing Daisy in The Hateful Eight. But maybe if those directors would actually write roles for her (if they wanna work with her so badly)…..

    Because the likes of Scorsese and Inarritu usually make movies about white men, I mean I know Meryl is a great actress but should she start stealing roles from men too?

    Streep is too old for Daisy. As controversial as the violence against the character was, were she played by a much older actress, the movie would be unreleased. Jackie Brown is the only part he ever wrote for someone in Streep’s demographics: older mature woman battling everyday realities while keeping the government and criminals off her back. Because Tarantino made the character black (she’s white in the book) the opportunity was missed.

    That’s what would’ve made Daisy sort of funny, if she was this older, vile, racist and conniving redneck. Jennifer Jason Leigh played her to a T, though.

    No one wants to watch an elderly woman brutalized on camera for fun.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Aquarius will be remade because a lot of times when good foreign films are buried by American distributors it is so they can remake them. If they did remake it, Streep would be PERFECT. I would much prefer Braga in the role so she can win an Oscar and because it would be bad if they white washed it, but still, that role screams Oscar.

    In a perfect world, who would be the perfect director to direct Streep in an Aquarius remake?

    Honestly though, in a perfect world Aquarius wouldn’t be remade and it would sweep the Oscars.
