Wildly busy 16-year-old Abigail Breslin is joining the impeccably-cast-thus-far August: Osage County film as the "angry and acerbic pot smoking child" of Julia Roberts, Deadline writes. Roberts herself is playing daughter to Meryl Streep. George Clooney is producing. Chris Cooper is considering joining in. So is Juliette Lewis. Just a great project to direct good feelings toward.
