Cody has been tweeting about the deal this afternoon, and has joked about it being an April Fools' stunt (nope, the deal is very real):
Streep has been on a winning streak (when isn't she?) this awards season with August: Osage County, which netted her a slew of accolades, including an Oscar nomination. Meanwhile, Cody's most recent effort, Paradise, marked her first directorial debut. Also on her plate is the script for a musical film based on the Sweet Valley High book series, which sounds like it could end up being either a complete train wreck or the best movie to watch drunk with your girlfriends ever.
