It wont be out in time for this Mother’s Day on Sunday obviously, but Deadline is reporting today that a new Indie film is in the works which will be all about mothers and daughters and follow 12 sets of them over the course of a single Mother’s Day. The first mom-daughter duo has been cast and it is Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri Martino. Which other mother and daughter actress pairs would you want to see in this new drama?
This isn’t the first time that Susan and her daughter, Eva, have acted on screen together. Eva played Susan’s daughter in the 2002 movie, The Banger Sisters, and she also played a younger version of her mother in 1995?s Dead Man Walking. I really love the idea of this movie and I think the first mom and daughter have been perfectly cast.
I am super keen to see how the movie pans out, especially whether it is set up like vignettes or ‘mini stories’, or whether the the 12 pairs of women all tie into one storyline. The concept though of casting the women with real mothers and daughters is clever and will definitely give the film a real edge. Casting will be tough though because they will obviously want quality actors who also happen to be mother and daughter. Another obvious choice is Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. Hmmm…who else would you want to be seen in this movie??
