Don't like cats? Then you might be all that much a fan of Meryl Streep's next.

Meryl Streep for Dewey

Meryl Streep has agreed to star in Dewey, an adaptation of the fact-based book Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World.

Streep will play the title character, an author who works at the library and observed the impact that a kitten had on the townsfolk once it became the library mascot after wandering in through the after-hours book return slot on a cold night.

Though the project could have experienced a bidding war, New Line took advantage of their first-look deal with Temple Hill Entertainment partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

Never heard of Temple Hill? Well, you will. The banner is behind upcoming films such as Twilight, Management, Gears of War, Zero G and Parkour; to name a few.

Scribe Pamela Gray is currently working on adapting Dewey with no ETA on the film's production start.
