Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton are set to reunite for a brand new comedy and quite franklin, this is the best news all week.
According to Deadline, the three icons are set to hit the big sceen for the first time since their unforgettable performance in The First Wives Club back in 1996 in the new comedy Family Jewels.
The film will follow Hawn, Midler and Keaton’s characters who are forced to spend the Christmas holidays together, along with their kids and grandkids, after the man they were all once married to drops dead in a New York City department store.
New Republic principals Brian Oliver and Bradley Fischer will produce, along with Alan Nevins. Tracey Nyberg will executive produce.
“The chemistry of Diane, Bette and Goldie is unmatched and irresistible, and I’m thrilled to help reunite them on screen for generations of fans,” says Fischer.
“This movie fits perfectly in our plan to finance and produce four to six major studio theatricals a year and puts movie stars back where they ought to be – on the big screen” adds Oliver.
Nevins said “Brad and I always wanted Peter for this project but he was constantly busy. To our great joy, after the Cannes sale, we were able to get the three of us united.
"I, and the public, have waited many years for these three ladies to star in another film together.”
All we are hoping for is another rendition of 'You Don't Own Me':
