Goldie Hawn in talks for new Amy Schumer comedy

If this deal actually locks in, it could represent a fantastic combination of funny actresses from two different generations. News arrives via The Wrap that Goldie Hawn (Death Becomes Her) is in talks to star with Amy Schumer (Trainwreck) in her new, as yet untitled comedy.

According to The Wrap, Hawn is talks to play Schumer's mother in a film that the Trainwreck (2015) writer and actress has been developing at 20th Century Fox.

Originated by Katie Dippold (The Heat) and inspired by her relationship with her own mother, Schumer has adapted it for her voice, working with regular collaborator and sister Kim Caramele (Trainwreck). The story is still mostly being kept quiet but it apparently follows a family holiday that goes horribly, hilariously wrong.

Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) is on board to direct with Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) producing. If Hawn does end up in the film, it will mark her first cinematic appearance since The Banger Sisters (2002), and a welcome return for a comic talent. There is no sign yet of when this one might start shooting, but it will likely have to wait for Schumer to finish work on the latest series of her TV show, Inside Amy Schumer.
