Streep Quits King's Men

Subscribe to Meryl Streep alerts

Veteran actress Meryl Streep has dramatically dropped out of the forthcoming All the King's Men remake.

The screen star's sudden decision has left Steven Zaillian's film - a modern take on the 1949 Best Picture OSCAR winner - in desperate need of a replacement.

No reason has been given for Streep's departure, but some reports claim her hectic 2005 schedule forced her to quit the project, according to website EMPIREONLINE.CO.UK.

The original film followed the rise and fall of American politician WILLIE STARKS from a rural country seat to the spotlight in Washington, DC.

Sean Penn, Jude Law and Kate Winslet have all signed up to appear in the movie.
