On Thursday, word started bubbling about a new feature -- Great Hope Springs -- which had a pretty apt title for the feelings this project should elicit. Written by TV writer Vanessa Taylor, the project is close to closing deals that will have Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges come together as a couple unsure about their 30-year marriage. Instead of the It's Complicated route with jerky exes and romantic triangles, the pair "attend an intense counseling session over a weekend in order to decide the fate of their marriage."

At first, it was getting a killer third party -- Philip Seymour Hoffman -- as the doctor. However, word has it there are scheduling issues that have the cast down one doc. However, there's a bright side. They might be up one hell of a director.
