Andie MacDowell is going to have something to do other than hawk anti-ageing potions, as she’s signed up to star in the indie flick Mother’s Day. As you’ve probably guessed, this isn’t another remake of the horror flick of the same name, or indeed a Garry Marshall type movie based around a particular day.
Instead it’s an ensemble family drama that follows the relationships of six mothers and their daughters. MacDowell’s real-life daughter, Rainey Qualley, has also been cast in the movie. Real mothers and daughters seems to be a theme for the movie, as Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri Martino are also set to star. Christina Ricci is also onboard, but unfortunately there’s little info on any of the characters these people will play.
Paul Duddridge is on writing directing duties, although there’s no info on exactly when it might shoot. (Source: Deadline)
