Word is out that Goldie Hawn is going to join Amy Schumer in a comedy, her first movie since The Banger Sisters in 2002. Hawn said to The Hollywood Reporter that she was “happy not to be in the makeup trailer” anymore, but couldn’t turn down the chance to play Schumer’s mom when the role came to her.
It’s 14 years since she last graced our screens, alongside Susan Sarandon. Now, at 70 years old and looking hot as ever, she’s going to play Amy Schumer’s Mum. “We are going to do a really funny movie together,” Hawn told THR at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability gala. “It’s going to be a blast.” The still-untitled mother-daughter comedy, distributed by Fox, was written by Katie Dippold, the screenwriter who rebooted Ghostbusters, and will be directed by 39-year-old Jonathan Levine, who produced Zac Efron’s upcoming summer comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Hawn says proudly that this is not a sign that she’d be on our screens more often. “[I’m] not doing this to reestablish a career. I didn’t go out [looking for a role], it came to me. I was happy not to be in the makeup trailer. But it got to a point when I thought, ‘Gee, you know, it might be fun to make people laugh again.’ ”
