Prime: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep are teaming to star in Ben Younger's feature Prime, which Mark Gordon and Bob Yari's Stratus Film Co. is negotiating to acquire, sources confirmed.

A New York-set story that centers around the emotion and humor that ensues when a 22-year-old painter from Brooklyn falls in love with a 37-year-old career woman (Bullock) from the Upper East Side.

Streep is attached to play the Bullock character's therapist. The part of the young male painter has yet to be cast. Younger will direct from his own script.

Younger wrote and directed Boiler Room, starring Giovanni Ribisi and Ben Affleck, for New Line Cinema.
