Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank Join THE HOMESMAN Written and Directed by Tommy Lee Jones

We previously reported that Tommy Lee Jones would be writing, directing, producing and starring in The Homesman; now it looks as if Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank will join the picture.  (For those of you playing along at home, that would make six Oscars among the three actors.)  The Homesman is a pioneer period piece which follows a claim-jumping rascal (Jones) and a frontierwoman as they escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa and battle the harsh elemental conditions of the prairie.  Swank will play the frontierwoman, but The Wrap reports that it’s not yet clear which part Streep will take on (insane woman perhaps?).  This will mark a reunion of Jones and Streep, who starred together in Great Hope Springs this summer.  The Homesman will mark the first time Swank has worked with either actor.
