Blonde beauties Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are teaming up to star alongside one another in an Australia-French co-production called The Grandmothers, which will actually have them playing friends and mothers who find themselves caught up in similar, though equally strange romantic situations.

The Hollywood Reporter posted the news, describing the film as “The erotic tale of misguided love and a celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship.” Funded by Screen Australia and directed by Anne Fontaine, The Grandmothers will star Wright and Watts as two life-long friends who somehow end up falling in love with each other’s teenage sons. Something tells me Freud would find the whole situation very interesting, especially if there’s a bit of transference going on between these four people.

?The movie is based on Doris Lessing’s novel and is being adapted for the big screen by Christopher Hampton. Also set to star in the film are Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville. Not having read the book, I can only speculate on what the title refers to, but it would be truly bizarre if these two mothers turned each other into grandmothers.

Among Watts‘ recent film credits are J. Edgar, Dream House, and Fair Game. Meanwhile, Wright is set to appear in the upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as the Netflix series in development House of Cards, which will also star Kevin Spacey. ??
