In “The Good House”, Meryl Streep, 64, will play the character of Hildy Good, a realtor, a former alcoholic, and Robert De Niro, 69, will act as Frank Getchell, a former lover from Hildy’s youth.

“We knew right away with [producer Jane Rosenthal’s] and Michael’s demonstrated talent and Ann’s bestseller that we have the opportunity to create something truly entertaining,” Karen Lunder, executive vice president of production at FilmNation, said in a statement. “It is undeniable the authenticity and chemistry Meryl and Bob will offer us as they bring these characters to life.”

Writer Michael Cunningham, a Pulitzer Prize winner, is set to write the screenplay.
