LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Rita Wilson has joined Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin in the next project from Nancy Meyers, the director of "Something's Gotta Give."

In the untitled Universal film, Wilson will portray one of Streep's best friends and confidantes.

Up next for Wilson is Fox Searchlight's spring release "My Life in Ruins," starring Nia Vardalos of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." In November, Wilson appears in the Disney comedy "Old Dogs" alongside John Travolta and Robin Williams.
