Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton to Star in Netflix Film “Divanation”


What would happen if you removed the awful husbands from The First Wives Club, and instead Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Diane Keaton formed a girl group and toured the nation—and then broke up acrimoniously? And then flashed forward 20 years? Well, you’d have Divanation, a new feature film from Netflix. (But sorry, no, it isn’t actually a sequel to The First Wives Club.)

Deadline reports that the film will star the three women as estranged members of a girlgroup who are forced to reunite after their thirty year estrangement. OK, so, the timeline doesn’t exactly match up with The First Wives Club, but that’s fine. The film is being written by the Surf’s Up writing team of Lisa Addario and Joey Syracuse. No director has been attached, as the studio is waiting for the screenplay to be completely finalized.

This will be Goldie Hawn’s first live-action role since 2002’s The Banger Sisters, and the second time Netflix has been so kind as to reunite beautiful, legendary actresses, the first being, of course, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda in Grace and Frankie. (They first appeared together, with Dolly Parton, in 1980’s Nine to Five.)
