Goldie Hawn in talks to join Amy Schumer mother-daughter comedy

If you're like me and thirsty for news confirming  any upcoming project for Meryl, you'll be disappointed to learn that it's looking less likely that she'll be joining Amy Schumer in her upcoming mother-daughter comedy.  Among other sources, Vanity Fair is reporting that the great Goldie Hawn is in "early talks" to team with Schumer instead.

Assuming this pans out for Hawn, I'm happy for her, as she hasn't been in a feature film since 2002's The Banger Sisters.   Last summer it was rumored that along with both Sally Field and Frances Conroy, Streep was on the casting "wish list."  Plot details seem tightly under wraps, but apparently the film will depict a mom and daughter who are kidnapped while vacationing in Brazil.  Hilarity no doubt ensues.

Jonathan Levine is set to direct with a Mother's Day, 2017 release date planned.


  1. Coincidental to your mentioning that Sally Field was on the casting "wish list" for this project, I'm always fantasized about a movie co-starring Meryl and Sally. Both are excellent at drama and comedy. I'm not sure what would be a good vehicle for them. Any ideas?

    1. I love when Meryl teams up with her female contemporaries in movies! I haven't really considered Sally Field up to this point, but of course she would be great. I can't immediately think of any biopics that could feature the two in dual lead roles at the moment, but would totally be open to seeing them in an original story or literary adaptation. What about you? Any ideas?

    2. I heard many good things about Amy but only saw her at the Golden Globes and she was patently unfunny. Best of luck to Goldie if this pans out though, it's been too long!

      Field deserves more hits in hee filmography, she's superb!
