The ‘First Wives’ Cast Will Reunite For New Comedy Feature
In 1996's First Wives Club, Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn played three divorcees who had sworn off men. In a new Netflix comedy feature that will reunite them nearly 20 years later, they will have sworn off each other, instead.
According to Deadline, the streaming service has acquired Divination, the story of a formerly revered singing trio who will reunite — begrudgingly — 30 years after a terrible breakup and ensuing silence. Slowly, though, the site says they'll find ways to sort through their baggage and remember the chemistry that first brought them together.
Lisa Addario and Joey Syracuse wrote Divination and Brad Fischer, James Vanderbilt and William Sherak will act as producers. The movie will start shooting when a new version of the script has been submitted.
Netflix's first feature film, Beast Of No Nation, premiered in September and tells the story of a young boy named Agu who's forced to join a West African guerrilla group in the thick of civil war. The Ridiculous Six, which widened the service's original features genre to include comedies, infamously drove Native American actors to walk off set in protest of the film's propagation of stereotypes and racist subtext.
An adaptation of Our Souls At Night, which will star Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, is next on Netflix's agenda, Deadline says.
