Meryl Streep is set to star in the film adaptation of the musical Mamma Mia! — production starts this summer.
I’m not a huge fan of the stage show, though the fake ABBA concert at the end is kinda fun (and I do love ABBA in general). I’m definitely looking forward to hearing Meryl sing some more. She and Lily Tomlin warbled very sweetly indeed in A Prairie Home Companion.
But let’s face it: If Streep’s in it, I’ll see it. She could become the new lead singer of Betty and I’d probably buy a concert ticket. Maybe.
