Dubbed the queen of the Oscars considering the streak of nominations she has received over the years, Hollywood actress Meryl Streep is set to play a “rock star” in her latest movie, Ricki and the Flash.
Producers stepped up the bar for musical film by getting her to sing twelve modern hits including Bruce Springsteen‘s “My Love Will Not Let You Down,” Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance” and so on and they were recorded before a live audience.
With two previous musical roles in Into The Woods and Mamma Mia, Streep is expected to play the role without hitches. The role is that of a guitarist-singer who leaves her family in pursuit of fame and fortune in the show biz world. She is supported by a real-life rock star, Rick Springfield who plays one of her band members.
