Goldie Hawn in Talks to Play Amy Schumer’s Mom in Fox Comedy

Goldie Hawn is in early negotiations to portray the mother of Amy Schumer’s character in Fox’s “Mother/Daughter” movie comedy.

It would be Hawn’s first movie gig since 2002’s “The Banger Sisters” with Susan Sarandon.

Fox announced in October that it had scheduled “Mother/Daughter” for a Mother’s Day weekend release on May 12, 2017.

Schumer set up the project — centered on mother-daughter relationships — in May. Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) is directing from a script by Katie Dippold (“The Heat”). Chernin Entertainment and Feigco Entertainment are producing.

Schumer’s “Trainwreck” grossed $110 million domestically for Universal and raked in another $28 million internationally. Her original screenplay was nominated for a Writers Guild of America award.

Hawn won an Oscar for best supporting actress in 1968’s “Cactus Flower” while she was a cast member on “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In.” She received a best actress nomination for “Private Benjamin” and has credits on “Butterflies Are Free,” “The First Wives Club,” “The Sugarland Express,” “Death Becomes Her,” “Swing Shift” and “Shampoo.”

Hawn is the mother of Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell.

Hawn is repped by CAA. The news about Hawn was first reported by New York magazine.
