Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is set to return to the big screen in a new comedy alongside Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock.
The untitled comedy created by “Sex and The City” mastermind, Michael Patrick King is based on three women navigating their way through the “madness” that surrounds marketing, marriages and the media.
I came up with the idea of writing for Meryl, Sandy and Oprah, and it became so specific to them that I wanted to be sure I had interest from these ladies. I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. They’re all unique, and the idea of writing parts that three strong women will play is such a challenge. Their body of work is beyond reproach. It’s also appealing to craft a character for Oprah to come back and play that’s not Oprah.
The “home shopping network” flick will be Oprah’s first cameo since starring in “Beloved” in 1999.
