November 3rd, 2005 10:00am EST
Picturehouse has acquired rights to A Prairie Home Companion, based on Garrison Keillor's legendary radio variety show and starring Keillor (as himself), with Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Tommy Lee Jones, Lily Tomlin, John C. Reilly, Woody Harrelson, Virginia Madsen, Maya Rudolph, and Lindsey Lohan.

A Prairie Home Companion is a fictionalized account of Keillor's award-winning show, which currently runs on more than 558 public radio stations. The film follows the show's cast of characters preparing for the final live broadcast on the eve of being shut down after 30 years. As passions erupt, secrets emerge and a mysterious stranger lurks in the shadows, the vigilant stage manger must hold it all together since the "show must go on."
