HBO Max has revealed the trailer and key art for the streaming service’s original feature film, Let Them All Talk. The movie will begin streaming on HBO Max Thursday, December 10.
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh directed Let Them All Talk, which stars Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Candice Bergen, Academy Award nominee Lucas Hedges, Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians) and Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest.
Let Them All Talk tells the story of a celebrated author (Meryl Streep) who takes a journey with some old friends (Candice Bergen and Dianne Wiest) to have some fun and heal old wounds.
Her nephew (Lucas Hedges) comes along to wrangle the ladies as well as her new literary agent (Gemma Chan) who is desperate to find out about her next book.
MacArthur Fellow and PEN / Faulkner award-winning author Deborah Eisenberg wrote the screenplay and Gregory Jacobs (The Laundromat, Magic Mike) produced the Warner Bros. production.
Filming took place last year in New York, onboard Queen Mary 2 and in the UK. The executive producers are Ken Meyer and Joseph Malloch.
“This is the kind of project where you just say yes please sign me up,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max.
“To work with Steven Soderbergh and this all-star cast led by Meryl Streep is thrilling and sets the standard for features at HBO Max.”
Streep previously talked to Indiewire about how fast Soderbergh shot the movie. “I told [Soderbergh] he was gonna ruin everything for every director, and every production designer, and everything else, because he made the movie for 25 cents — I know that’s what I was paid,” Streep said.
“Then it was made in two weeks, and it was a free ride on the boat.”
Bergen added: “I think [Soderbergh]’s the most fearless filmmaker, and his intellect is so piercing. He was doing the camerawork, so you sort of watched his brain right behind the camera, spinning like a top. It was really interesting. And short.”
