Book Club” centers on four lifelong friends in their 60s who read “Fifty Shades of Grey” in their monthly book club and have their lives forever changed — even though this is not the type of book they typically read.

Keaton recently starred with Brendan Gleeson in the independent drama “Hampstead,” portraying an American widow who finds unexpected love with a man living wild on Hampstead Heath when they take on the developers who want to destroy his home.

Fonda stars with Lily Tomlin in the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie.” She’s been nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning for “Klute” and “Coming Home.”
