Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro haven't graced the big screen together in over 17 years ... and fortunately, that streak is about to end.

The movie golden couple is set to star in the feature film adaptation of the best-selling Ann Leary novel, "The Good House," Deadline reports.

The darkly comic story centers around Hildy Good (Streep), a New England realtor and not-so-recovering alcoholic whose perfectly compartmentalized life starts to fall apart when she forms a friendship with Rebecca McCallister. As Rebecca becomes the subject of town gossip, Hildy rekindles an old flame with Frank Getchell (De Niro), a tell it like it is Yankee, who tries to un-complicate her complicated life.

Streep and De Niro previously starred together in 1978′s "The Deer Hunter," 1984′s "Falling In Love," and 1996′s "Marvin's Room." Are you excited to see the two Hollywood heavy-hitters onscreen together again? Hit the comments with your opinions!
