Goldie Hawn is reportedly in early talks to play Amy Schumer's mum in a new comedy produced by Fox.

The untitled movie will be directed by Jonathan Levine and will focus on a mother and daughter stuck on a vacation that's gone wrong.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sally Field and Frances Mcdormand were both previously approached to play the role of the mother, but neither worked out.

Hawn has not appeared in a film since 2002's Banger Sisters, or a TV series since a one-off appearance in a 2013 appearance of Phineas And Ferb.

The untitled film will be Schumer's first movie appearance since last year's Trainwreck.

Recently, Jennifer Lawrence confirmed that she and Schumer had finished writing the script for their new film.

Speaking to Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music last month (January 4), Lawrence stated that the pair have finished writing it and want to start work on the project "soon".

"That is done. We have finished writing it," she replied when quizzed. "We have an official first draft. I am going to try and fit it somewhere into my ghoulish schedule, and we're gonna try to do that pretty soon."

Speaking about the writing process, the Hunger Games star continued: "It was hilarious, because when you're writing a comedy it's not good enough unless you're laughing out loud. So I'm laughing at my pages and I'm laughing at her pages and thinking that the whole process is hilarious. I'm thinking we've got a pretty funny, good movie."
