Good news is hard to find these days, but here’s some: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and a fourth actress yet to be announced will play book-clubbers who are awakened after reading Fifty Shades of Grey.
Yep, that’s right: Three of your favorite septuagenarians are about to be very horny.
The California-set movie is called “Book Club,” and Deadline reported Thursday that distribution rights for the comedy will be sold at this month’s Cannes Film Festival. It marks the directorial debut of Bill Holderman, who co-wrote and produced 2015’s “A Walk in the Woods,” starring fellow septuagenarians Robert Redford (who has since turned 80) and Nick Nolte.
Keaton, Fonda and Bergen will play lifelong friends whose lives are “changed forever” after reading E.L. James’ best-seller. The character descriptions, according to Deadline, are too delicious for us to wait for this movie to materialize:
Keaton will play Diane, who is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, while Fonda will also play her namesake, Jane, a woman who enjoys her men with no strings attached. Bergen plays Sharon, who is still working through a decades-old divorce, while Carol (yet to be cast), a woman whose 35-year-old marriage is in a slump, rounds out the foursome.
Fonda may need to borrow some of the sex toys from “Grace and Frankie.”
