Per Deadline, New Republic Photos has acknowledged the necessity for a long-overdue First Wives Membership reunion and, of their second of benevolence, bought a brand new movie from Peter Hoare starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton. Household Jewels will mark the primary large display reunion for the trio since their 1996 hit. Whereas the brand new movie shouldn’t be associated to the extremely quotable popular culture favourite in any manner, it does have Hawn, Midler, and Keaton enjoying the roles of bothered former wives.
Deadline reveals that “in Household Jewels, Hawn, Midler and Keaton’s characters are pressured to spend the Christmas holidays collectively, together with their children and grandkids, after the person they have been all as soon as married to drops lifeless in a New York Metropolis division retailer.” Hoare will pen the screenplay that New Republic hopes to start producing this 12 months. Whereas the challenge remains to be within the very early levels, followers who nonetheless can’t hearken to Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Personal Me” with out considering of ivory energy fits and a flippantly choreographed musical quantity are nonetheless fairly stoked about the potential for seeing the First Wives Membership again in session very quickly, even when the story is only a tad totally different.
We hope that this new effort to get Hawn, Keaton, and Midler on the identical display will get a little bit additional than the trio’s final try. Again in 2015, the actresses have been in talks to star in a Netflix movie a couple of reunited lady group known as Divanation. When Hawn appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Occurs Reside in 2017, she confirmed that the challenge was formally lifeless on account of a flawed script that was past restore. “It didn’t work out,” Hawn instructed host Andy Cohen. “The script was flawed and nobody was capable of actually repair it, and all people determined to let it go.” So, you understand, no strain, Hoare.
BET and Ladies Journey author Tracy Oliver just lately rebooted the basic movie for the cable community’s streaming service, BET+.
