Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and the other cast members of “August: Osage County” will be shooting their film in the Bartlesville and Pawhuska areas beginning next month.

The Weinstein Company, the studio producing the movie based on Tulsa native Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, is not prepared to make the announcement, but the Oklahoma Film Commission, which has helped filmmakers scout the area for locations, has a jobs listing on its website for crew members for the picture, and says the film is scheduled to begin shooting in the area on Sept. 24.

While a film commission spokesperson declined to comment on the filming, the wish of many Oklahomans is apparently confirmed: “August: Osage County” will literally film in Osage County, as well as other areas, this fall.
