Goldie Hawn May Play Amy Schumer's Mom in Vacation Comedy
Two comedy giants may be joining forces: Goldie Hawn is reportedly in talks to play Amy Schumer's mom in an upcoming mother-daughter vacation comedy.
Vulture reporter Kyle Buchanan was the first to break the news that Hawn was circling the role, which would be her first since way back in 2002, when she co-starred with Susan Sarandon in "The Banger Sisters." Since then, Hawn has been in semi-retirement, so landing her for the Schumer project would be a major coup.
According to TheWrap, the flick in question is an untitled project from director Jonathan Levine ("50/50," "Warm Bodies," "The Night Before"), produced by hitmaker Paul Feig and written by frequent Feig collaborator Katie Dippold ("The Heat," "Spy," this summer's "Ghostbusters"). It's based on Dippold's relationship with her own mother, per TheWrap, and centers around "a family vacation gone wrong."
So far Hawn's involvement has not been confirmed by studio 20th Century Fox, but we're hoping this is one rumor that pans out. Pairing Schumer with Hawn would be a brilliant bit of casting, and we're excited to (hopefully) see them face off against each other.
