The girls are back! The First Wives Club costars Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton are reuniting for a new Netflix movie — and making our dreams come true. The longtime pals will star in a comedy called Divanation.
According to Deadline, the trio will play a former singing group that reconnects 30 years after splitting up. No further details were provided.
Hawn and Midler, both 70, and Keaton, 69, starred in the smart and laugh-out-loud flick The First Wives Club in 1996. The actors played scorned wives Elise, Brenda and Annie, respectively, who all get revenge on their ex-husbands.
The Hugh Wilson–directed movie also featured Maggie Smith, Sarah Jessica Parker, Stockard Channing, Dan Hedaya, Victor Garber, Stephen Collins, Elizabeth Berkly and Marcia Gay Harden.
Back in February, Hawn explained why a sequel never made it to the big screen. “We were all women of a certain age, and everyone took a cut in salary to do it so the studio could make what it needed. We all took a smaller back end than usual and a much smaller front end. And we ended up doing incredibly well. The movie was hugely successful. It made a lot of money. We were on the cover of Time magazine,” she told Harvard Business Review at the time.
“But two years later, when the studio came back with a sequel, they wanted to offer us exactly the same deal,” she continued. “We went back to ground zero. Had three men come in there, they would have upped their salaries without even thinking about it. But the fear of women’s movies is embedded in the culture.”
