Her other recent screen credits include “Music of the Heart” and “Marvin’s Room.” Streep is repped by CAA.

Fox will handle worldwide theatrical and international homevideo on “Minority Report,” while DreamWorks will handle the rights for domestic homevid and worldwide television. No release date has been set.
