Panama Papers Film Set to Star Hollywood A List

17 May 2018

Acting legend Meryl Streep signed on to star in Steven Soderbergh's new film, The Laundromat, according to Variety.

Actors Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas are in discussions to join the production, the Reporter said Monday.

Renowned director Steven Soderbergh will be at the helm of the film, which is based on the Jake Bernstein book "Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money Networks and the Global Elite".

Ms Caruana Galizia's son, Matthew Caruana Galizia, was part of the Pulitzer-winning team of journalists and data miners that released the Panama Paper revelations.

Meryl Streep is set to star in the upcoming drama The Laundromat, based on the Panama Papers.

Streep's character details are being kept secret, but sources describe it as being the emotional throughline of the movie. The Panama Papers are almost 12 million documents that detail private financial information about offshore business entities. Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) wrote the screenplay. More than 11 million records were leaked about Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which allowed the wealthy to funnel money illegally in and around the world. Michael Sugar, who received a Best Picture Oscar for Spotlight - another film about journalists unearthing scandal - is among the film's producers.

The documents were leaked anonymously in 2015. That film explored the struggle the Washington Post went through with publishing the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s.

Streep is known for her versatility and accent adaptation. From a nun to a rock star, Margaret Thatcher to Anna Wintour, Meryl Streep really can do it all - and do it all convincingly.
