Meryl Streep is Julia Child -- First Picture!

Here is first look of Meryl Streep as Julia Child from the upcoming biopic Julie & Julia.

Here’s the movie’s plotline via Wiki: Frustrated temp secretary Julie Powell (Amy Adams) embarks on a yearlong culinary quest to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child‘s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She chronicles her trials and tribulations in a blog that catches on with the food crowd. The film also covers the years Julia Child and her husband Paul (Stanley Tucci) spent in Paris during the 1940s and ’50s, when Paul was a foreign diplomat who was eventually investigated by Sen. Joseph McCarthy for alleged communist ties.

Julie & Julia is currently filming and is slated to be released in 2009. The film is based on Julie Powell’s memoir Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen. Directing is Nora Ephron, whose film credits include Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Bewitched. Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters) and Mary Lynn Rajskub (24) also costar.

    Is this the bio pic? Not too many people know that Julia Child was a spy for the US during WWII? Cool. That generation was in it deep!

    Now if she can get Julia’s famous high voice down without sounding like a SNL sketch. If anyone can get an accent right it’s Meryl!

    This sounds like two different movies in the same film. Random. At least it’s Meryl. And I like Amy Adams a lot.
