Tommy Lee Jones is putting his next directorial effort together, and he's lined up a lot of Oscar firepower, as both Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank are attached to star in The Homesman. The movie is a futuristic tale of ... haha, just kidding, it's a pioneer-era story about Swank and Jones transporting three mentally ill women from Nebraska to Iowa. Though the Wrap doesn't provide additional details, we're assuming that Streep will play one of those three insane women? (It sure ain't gonna be Annette Bening.)
