MacDowell Remembers Mother's Day

No, this is not an Amazing Spider-Man-style lightning reboot of horror remake Mother’s Day. Nor, as far as we can tell, is it another one of those rom-coms built around a particular holiday. The new Mother's Day does sound like it’ll feature a big ensemble cast though, and Andie MacDowell, along with real-life daughter Rainey Qualley, has now signed on.

So far, writer-director Paul Duddridge has recruited one mother / daughter team in Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri Martino, alongside Christina Ricci, for a tale that follows the relationship between 12 mothers and their daughters. Exactly what the plot will involve has not been revealed, but you’ve got to figure on a mix of hostile and supportive mother-sprog teams.

This isn’t the first time that MacDowell has shared the screen with her progeny: she acted alongside Qualley in Mighty Fine, which arrived in US cinemas last month but doesn’t yet have a UK release date. She’s also scheduled to appear (minus her daughter this time) in horror thriller The Firstling, which should scream on to screens next year.
