A Prairie Home Companion

This news also comes from Variety:

A Prairie Home Companion (25th Ed.) Book

Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Woody Harrelson, John C. Reilly, Lily Tomlin and Maya Rudolph are set to star in Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion, a spin-off from Garrison Keillor's legendary U.S. radio variety show. Kevin Kline is also in talks to join the cast.

Keillor has written the script and will appear as himself in the movie, which will shoot this summer in Minneapolis, reports Variety.

In the film, as the ensemble of performers, musicians and back-stage crew prepare for the final live broadcast, long-simmering passions boil to the surface while an imperious stage manager struggles to hold everyone together.

Streep and Tomlin play sisters, while Lohan is a sexy ingenue. A menacing stranger, who might just be the angel of death, stalks in the wings, but the show must go on.

Wow , this is a movie only Altman could do...or would do lol.
