In what might be the most exciting casting news of the young year, New York magazine editor Kyle Buchanan revealed that semi-elusive comedy icon Goldie Hawn is very very close to being cast as Amy Schumer’s mother in an upcoming “mother-daughter vacation comedy” directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies). Depending on how her Netflix movie Divanation pans out, it will be her first film role since 2002's R-rated romp The Banger Sisters, in which she played a former groupie alongside Susan Sarandon.
And now, the conversation I imagine Hawn is currently having with her daughter, Kate Hudson:
KATE: Mom, you have to do this. It’s fucking huge. It’s fucking Amy!
GOLDIE: Sweetie you know I don’t know who anyone is these days. And don’t say fucking. It’s not even noon!
KATE: Fine but honestly mom if you don’t take this you’re a fu—you’re a freaking idiot. What else do you have to do?
GOLDIE: Kurt and I have plenty to do, thank you very much. There’s, you know, the guest house? It’s needed to be redone for years. And I’ve really wanted to take up coding.
GOLDIE: I have to keep my mind, you know!
KATE: So the choice is...star in a guaranteed hit with Amy Fucking Schumer...or....coding?
GOLDIE: Yes. That’s the choice. Now are you coming with me to the grocery store or not? We’re out of everything.
KATE: Yes. Shotgun!
GOLDIE: There’s no one else here. Unless you’re bringing Nick.
KATE: Don’t. Don’t you even start with Nick.
GOLDIE: You don’t start with me, and I won’t start with you.
