Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton And Bette Midler Are Reuniting For A Movie That Isn’t A Sequel To “The First Wives Club”
Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler said hell no to a sequel to the highly quotable classic The First Wives Club, because even though it made millions upon million of dollars and was a success, the studio’s offer was trash. They were offered the same deal they got for the first movie. So a First Wives Club sequel never happened (but you know those evil demons of Hollywood are planning to do a reboot starring Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and Amy Schumer). But Deadline says that the three are reuniting for a Netflix movie. Since Netflix is in the reuniting mood, can they please reunite the cast of 9 to 5 by putting Dolly Parton on Grace & Frankie?!
Deadline says that Goldie, Diane and Bette will star in a movie called Divanation, which is also the name of Mariah Carey’s city on Sim City Build-It. The three of them will play the member of a once-popular girl group who had a messy split and are forced to reunite after 30 years of not seeing each other’s faces. Producers are currently looking for a director and the second draft is being written right now.
I know the plot doesn’t really fit and they’re too old, but I still hope that Divanation is a Wilson Phillips biopic starring Goldie as Chynna Phillips, Diane Keaton as Wendy Wilson and Bette Midler as Carnie Wilson.
And the only way Divanation could get any better is if the producers get Elizabeth Berkley to recreate the Oscar-worthy performance she gave as Victor Garber’s underage trophy piece (yeah, she played 16, it’s make believe) in First Wives Club.
