A Cyberpunk 2077 developer has suggested a surprise celebrity addition to the game – Meryl Streep.
Cyberpunk 2077 has already snagged one major Hollywood player in Keanu Reeves, but when we caught up with quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, we couldn’t resist asking which star he would add to the game if he could pick anyone.

After a moment of deliberation, he landed on the multiple Oscar winner and shouting meme queen, “Oh my god, this is difficult. Ah, there’s so many great actors I love… Like, I love Meryl Streep, for example. I love Devil Wears Prada, and it would be great to have her as one of the characters in the game.”
Without missing a beat, Tomaszkiewicz started to come up with a solid idea of what role she could play in the game. He said “She could be totally one of the big corporate characters in the game. I can picture this.” We understand where Tomaszkiewicz is coming from. We’d love to carry out missions for a robo-version of Miranda Priestly, her cold-as-ice character in The Devil Wears Prada.
While Keanu Reeves might not be new to the world of video games, Meryl Streep is yet to appear in one herself, and we couldn’t think of a better game to make her debut in, even if that’s just wishful thinking on our part.
We won’t have to wait too long to see if Tomaszkiewicz’s suggestion can be sneaked into the hyped roleplaying game, as it’s due to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 16 April.

Maybe we should send one to Meryl to help sweeten the deal…
