If you’re a famous actress of a certain age, and you can find a script and three other comparable ladies, a movie is in your future.
The latest is called “Fabulous Four,” and it stars Bette Midler, who’s getting married later in life, with her pals Susan Sarandon, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Megan Mullally.
When the film, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, was first announced in 2023, Sissy Spacek was attached. Apparently she dropped out was replaced by the dynamo Emmy winner Ralph, who just got an award named for her at Project Angel Food in Los Angeles.
All of this started with “The First Wives Club” years ago. Lately Jane Fonda headed two movies in the “Golden Girls” category, both hits — “Book Club 2” and “80 for Brady.” More and more of these are being filmed as the audience exists and they love seeing big stars still in their prime. These movies are also great for guys in this age group, too!
Bleecker Street Films will produce and release.
