Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn comedy gets a title
Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s upcoming comedy wrapped filming back in August, and now the movie has a name: Snatched.
Schumer announced the title via her Twitter Monday. She and Hawn play a mother and daughter in the film, directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50) with a screenplay by Katie Dippold (Ghostbusters, The Heat). Dippold previously told Collider the movie’s based on her own mother, who has lost some of her adventurous ways over the years.
“I started daydreaming about, ‘What if I took her on a crazy vacation somewhere?'” Dippold said. “‘And then I took us off the beaten path, just to shake things up?’ So then I started thinking about a movie version of that … So the movie is that. She gets taken off the beaten path, but then everything the mother feared is correct.”
Snatched arrives in theaters May 12, 2017. See Schumer’s tweet below.
