Subject: "Mary Stuart" the Movie

The following article is from the Mr. Showbiz Web Site:

"Glenn Close and Meryl Streep To Collaborate on `Mary Stuart`"

There may not be very many good roles for women in movies these days, but 
Glenn Close and Meryl Streep have found a way to solve the job shortage. 
The actresses have created roles for themselves. Close and Streep will 
co-star and co-produce `Mary Stuart,` a film adaptation of Friedrich 
Schiller's play about the titular sixteenth-century monarch. Close is 
set to play Queen Elizabeth I, while Streep will portray her cousin, 
Mary Queen of Scots. The story focuses on the tragic confrontation that 
occurred when Mary disputed Elizabeth's crown. Close and Streep are 
producing the project from the ground up, and are currently raising money 
for the production -- not an easy job considering the emphasis Hollywood 
is now placing on how a film opens. Richard Eyre is set to direct the 
film, which should go into production next summer.

Wouldn't you think MSM should be in this movie?
