Meryl Streep, seen in this exclusive poster for the upcoming Jonathan Demme film Ricki and the Flash, is evoking a real-life rocker mama.

Screenwriter Diablo Cody tells Yahoo Movies that the character of Ricki (Streep) is inspired by Cody’s mother-in-law, Terry, who is the lead singer in a Jersey Shore rock band called Silk and Steel. Flash, also starring Sebastian Stan, Kevin Kline, and '80s rocker Rick Springfield, is about a traveling musician who comes home reconnect with her family.
“Terry is a grandmother of six and she’s still up there rocking out every weekend, walking on the bar, just electrifying the audience,” adds Cody, who won an Oscar for 2007’s Juno.

Judging by one of Terry’s performances (of AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long) unearthed on YouTube, filmmakers took liberties with Streep’s look as Terry sports black hair and bedazzled jeans. Streep, meanwhile, has blond hair styled with a side-braid — though both lady rockers have plenty of attitude.

"Rock 'n’ roll is her life,” says Cody of her mom-in-law. “I think there’ve been people in her life who’ve thought it was kind of a silly thing for a mom or grandmother to do and she doesn’t give a damn. I love that about her.”

Here’s to hoping Terry’s rocker spirit shines through in Streep’s performance. One scene we hope makes the cut: The head-banging mom pouring vodka cocktails while belting out Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” (seen here at the 3:27 mark).

Ricki and the Flash strums its way into theaters Aug. 7.
