A First Wives’ Club TV adaptation has scored a pilot order at Paramount Network (fka Spike), our sister site Deadline reports. The half-hour comedy will be based on the 1996 film starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton, which was itself an adaptation of Olivia Goldsmith’s 1992 novel.

The potential series will take place in New York City and will chronicle a sisterhood of women who find strength in each other — and engage in a little revenge — after their marriages end. Read More

Greatest films about female solidarity

Reader’s Digest
Greatest films about female solidarity
March 19, 2018

From Steel Magnolias to Frances Ha, these are our favourite films about female solidarity.

If there’s one thing that life can guarantee, it’s unpredictability. When life doesn’t appear to be going according to plan and nothing seems to be going as it should, one of the few things you can be certain of is that your fellow women are going to be there with you no matter what. This rings true for Aurore (Agnès Jaoui), in I Got Life! – a timely and uplifting film celebrating womanhood which arrives in UK cinemas on March 23rd. Read More

(On The First Wive’s Club Sequel): “People love to jump to conclusions.

(On The First Wive’s Club Sequel): “People love to jump to conclusions. I’ve been at it so long I never jump to any conclusion,” she says. “One hit does not make a trend. It was funny because, as big a hit as that was, the town was determined to say it was a fluke. And that’s what they decided they were gonna say, that’s what they said and that’s how they behaved.”(Rocky Mountain News, 1999) – Bette Midler

TV Lands First Wive’s Club TV Series Out, Paramount Network First Wive’s Club TV Series In

The Wrap
Paramount Network to Adapt ‘First Wives’ Club Into TV Series
Carli Velocci | October 2, 2017 @ 12:16 PM

2017-09-20_3-09-12

Paramount Network announced Monday that it’s developing a new half-hour series based on the 1996 film “First Wives Club.”

Tracy Oliver, who most recently co-wrote the screenplay for the adult comedy summer hit “Girls Trip” is attached to the project. She became the first African-American woman to write a movie that grossed over $100 million domestically.

The series will have roughly the same plot as the film, which starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn as a trio of recently-divorced women who seek revenge on their husbands, who left them for younger women. In the meantime, the group also bonds together and finds strength to move forward thanks to their sisterhood. Read More

Vulture Asks: What Are the Best Revenge Movies?
By Vulture Editors

Perhaps you’ve just been betrayed by a friend, rejected by a lover, or unceremoniously fired by the leader of the free world on a global stage. Whatever the reason may be, we’re all occasionally in the mood for some good, old-fashioned vengeance at the movies, whether that comes in the form of gritty Korean thrillers, tales of petty high-schoolers plotting to upend the social hierarchy, or Bette Midler singing Lesley Gore in a white pantsuit.

Blast from the Past: The First Wives Club

Blast from the Past: The First Wives Club
BY RYAH COOLEY

When? 1996

What’s it rated? PG

Where’s it available? DVDStreaming on Amazon and Hulu

When you think of a go-to pick-me-up movie, one filled with marital betrayal, vengeance, blackmail, and more shoulder pads than you can shake a stick at doesn’t seem to be a natural fit. Nonetheless, ever since I fished out The First Wives Club from a discount DVD bin as a tween, the movie has weirdly never failed to perk me up. I blame the underlying theme of feminism, comedic timing, and the weirdly charming use of the phrase “It’s the ’90s,” to justify everything from getting Botox to minimalism. Read More

The “Snatched” star was on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” Thursday where she revealed that the movie was a no-go. Read More

The Shocking Reason There Was Never A First Wives Club Sequel

Remember First Wives Club? That 1996 flick starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton; the tale of three divorced women, seeking revenge on their ex-husbands for abandoning them for younger women; the comedy which brought us that unforgettable rendition of You Don’t Own Me; the movie that proved to be a surprise box office hit…?

How could we not remember? Didn’t it also feature Sarah Jessica Parker pre-SATC? (It did.) Read More
