After nearly two decades since working together last, Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro will reunite on-screen in the upcoming dark comedy “The Good House.”

According to Deadline, the film, an adaptation of Ann Leary’s novel of the same name, centers on a New England real estate agent named Hildy Good (Streep), a “not-so-recovering alcoholic” who also reconnects with an “old flame” (De Niro).

Michael Cunningham (“The Hours”), who is helming the film adaptation, is still on the lookout for a woman to play Rebecca McCallister, a new friend of Hildy’s who “becomes the subject of town gossip.”

The pair has starred opposite one another in several films, including “The Deer Hunter,” “Falling in Love” and, most recently, 1996’s “Marvin’s Room.”

Streep has become choosy with her roles over the past few years, solely hitting the big screen in “Hope Springs,” “The Iron Lady” and the upcoming “August: Osage County” over the past three years. De Niro most recently starred in this year’s family comedy “The Big Wedding.”
