The studio is hoping the triumvirate will be able to repeat their $100 million First Wives Club triumph with Avon Ladies--a story about the fast-growing market in hut-to-hut sales for Avon goods in the jungles of South America.
If they agree to sign on, the trio, which recently scored big playing zany revenge-bent ex-wives, will play zany, sales-bent Avon ladies. The movie was originally written years ago by Jane Anderson, author of the acclaimed HBO movie The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom. Anderson based her treatment on a People magazine article.
No deal has been inked yet, says a UA spokesman, but Hawn, Keaton and Midler are apparently interesting in teaming up on screen again.
