When news emerged last summer that Amy Schumer’s first post-Trainwreck project would be a mother-daughter kidnapping comedy, one question loomed above all others: Who in the world should play Amy Schumer’s mom? Now we’ve got our answer: It might be Goldie Hawn! The news was originally reported by Vulture’s Kyle Buchanan, and then confirmed by the Wrap. The untitled comedy would mark Hawn’s return to the screen after a 14-year absence. (Her last film was 2002’s The Banger Sisters, which now won’t even have the pleasure of being a trivia answer.) Of course, this news means that, in the Amy Schumer Cinematic Universe, Goldie Hawn once hooked up with Colin Quinn. Congratulations, Colin Quinn!
