Mamma Mia, its Streep.
The Oscar-winning actress will play the part of feisty single mum Donna.
Mamma Mia is based on the music of Swedish group Abba and is one of the most successful stage musicals.
It has taken pounds 1billion at the box office worldwide and played in more than 130 cities.
Streep, 56, who is tipped for Oscar glory in The Devil Wears Prada, is a talented singer.
Mamma Mia will be her first full musical, although she has sung in Postcards From The Edge and A Prairie Home Companion.
Hollywood's take on Mamma Mia is being made by Tom Hanks and his wife Rita.
Filming is to begin later this year.
