Meryl Streep to star in movie about a library cat

Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep will star in a movie based on a true story about a stray cat that wandered into a library.

Entertainment newspaper Variety reported Wednesday that Streep will star in the movie adaptation of the book by Vicky Myron, Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World.

Dewey crawled through the after-hours book-return slot on a cold night and became the library's mascot.

Streep will play Myron, who works at the library and observed the impact the cat had on the citizens of Spencer, Iowa.
