Veteran actress Meryl Streep is set to become America's first female president in the upcoming movie FIRST MAN.

In the movie, Streep will play a woman married to a media mogul - played by ROBERT DE NIRO - who embarks on a successful campaign for presidency.

While her husband is happy to put his career on hold to run her presidential campaign, he suddenly sees a huge role reversal once his wife takes office.

Streep and De Niro - who have previously worked together on THE DEER HUNTER, FALLING IN LOVE and MARVIN'S ROOM - are expected to start production on the film next year (06).
