The Weinstein Company are aiming for Oscar gold with "August: Osage Country," a much-buzzed about film adaptation of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning 2007 play (Letts also adapted his plays "Bug" and "Killer Joe" for the big screen). With a remarkable cast that includes Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts (as mother and daughter), the film -- written by Letts and directed by "The Company Men" helmer John Wells -- is a darkly comic family saga set in Oklahoma.
