Tucci added to ‘Julie & Julia’

Actor joins Streep, Adams in Ephron film

Stanley Tucci will reteam with his “The Devil Wears Prada” co-star Meryl Streep for Columbia Pictures’ “Julie & Julia.” Amy Adams also will star in the pic to be directed by Nora Ephron.

Tucci is in negotiations to play the husband of Julia Child, to be played by Streep.

Film centers on a frustrated temp secretary (Adams) who embarks on a yearlong culinary quest to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” She chronicles her trials and tribulations in a blog that catches on with the food crowd. Story also covers the Childs’ years in Paris during the 1940s and ’50s, when Paul was a foreign diplomat who was eventually investigated by Sen. Joseph McCarthy for alleged communist ties.

Ephron adapted the screenplay from Julie Powell’s book “Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.”

Studio is eyeing a March start date.

Laurence Mark, Amy Robinson, Eric Steel and Ephron are producing. Scott Rudin and Dana Stevens exec produce.

Tucci’s recent credits include NBC’s “ER,” Lasse Hallstrom’s “The Hoax” and “Lucky Number Slevin.”

He is repped by CAA.
