Amy Schumer's Mother/Daughter Comedy May Have Just Found The Perfect Mom
Amy Schumer has become an absolute powerhouse in the entertainment industry. Not only is she one of the most successful stand up comedians working today, but she has also fostered an incredible television show, as well as a burgeoning film career. One of her upcoming film projects may have found a legendary actress to portray her mother – and she is absolutely perfect for the role.
A brand new report from Variety seems to indicate that legendary actress Goldie Hawn is currently circling Mother/Daughter, with an eye on portraying Schumer’s titular mother. The mother of celebrities Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, and Wyatt Russell, Goldie Hawn has appeared in numerous iconic films such as Cactus Flower, Private Benjamin, Death Becomes Her, and Swing Shift. Despite Hawn’s long, illustrious career, if she signs on to Mother/Daughter , it will represent her first acting gig in a feature film since her 2002 comedy romp The Banger Sisters – which she co-starred in with Susan Sarandon.
Amy Schumer seems to have a natural knack for finding the right actors and comedians to portray members of her family. Her first feature film Trainwreck included comedian Colin Quinn and actress Brie Larson as her father and sister, respectively – both of whom excelled in the roles. In addition to that recent comedy, Schumer has also teamed up with Jennifer Lawrence for an upcoming film in which the real life best friends will portray sisters – which, by the way, sounds like a recipe for an absolutely perfect film.
With Inside Amy Schumer's success only growing with each passing season, Schumer’s star continues to rise. And it appears that the longer her rise to power continues, the more other members of the Hollywood community will continue to gravitate towards her. At this point we know very little about the actual story of Mother/Daughter, or how Schumer and Hawn’s characters will interact with one another. All we know for sure is that involves a mother and her daughter on a vacation gone wrong. It’s not much to go by, but it’s still more than enough to get us on board with the film’s premise. Written by Kate Dippold (The Heat), the film will be directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), which only adds to our excitement for the project.
Of course, like so many of these casting rumors, we need to emphasize that Hawn has not signed on the dotted line yet. Although she’s currently in talks to co-star in the film, nothing is set in stone yet. We will bring you more information related to Mother/ Daughter as it becomes available to us. The film is currently slated for a May 12, 2017 release date.
