Femmes get set to rock & roll

Dolman to pen, helm 'Sisters'

NEW YORK — Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn are negotiating to play the title roles in “The Banger Sisters,” a Fox Searchlight comedy/drama about the reunion of two women who were best friends during their wild rock ‘n’ roll days. The duo were groupies, which is how they got the label that is the film’s title.

The film has been written and will be directed by Bob Dolman, who’s making his directing debut after writing scripts like “Far and Away” and “Willow.” The actresses have been courted for the film for several months, but negotiations are just getting under way.

“The Banger Sisters” is being produced by Mark Johnson and Elizabeth Cantillon and the intention is to get the film into production so it can be completed by summer.

In the pic, one sister, a punked-out waitress (Hawn), is only too happy to wax nostalgic about the good old days, while the other, a prominent socialite (Sarandon), is desperate to hide her past secret.

Sarandon is repped by ICM’s Martha Luttrell and Sam Cohn, and Chris Andrews; Hawn is repped by ICM’s Ed Limato.
