You know Goldie Hawn for a wide range of films, including Cactus Flower, There's a Girl in My Soup, Private Benjamin, and Overboard. And while the Academy Award-winning star hasn't been in a flick in 15 years, she's returning to the screen in a new comedy. But can she and her unlikely co-star make the return a profitable one?

Hawn was last seen in 2002's The Banger Sisters. Starring alongside fellow Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, the flick was semi-successful, but only earned mixed reviews. Before that, Hawn headlined what is known as one of the biggest box office bombs of all time: Town & Country. And while the star can't be entirely blamed for the $90 million mess that only grossed a little over $10 million, she still managed to earn a Golden Raspberry Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actress, which may or may not have prompted the break from acting.
But now Hawn is back, and she's teaming up with none other than Amy Schumer for a new raunchy comedy. Originally titled Mother/Daughter, Snatched will hit theaters next summer, and could prove to be a successful return for Hawn.
For starters, the release of Snatched is marketing brilliance . . . Mother's Day weekend. Then, of course, there's Schumer, who seems to find success wherever she goes.

Fresh off the release of her best-selling autobiography, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Schumer has also proven that she can carry a film by herself. In 2015, Trainwreck hit theaters, which managed to receive positive reviews, as well as a high box office return. With a budget of $35 million, the comedy grossed over $140 million worldwide.
Schumer also has a writing credit on the new film, meaning audiences can expect that over-the-top humor the comedian is well known for. And while only the trailer and a few minor details regarding the project have been released, it's predicted that Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer will make quite the dynamic duo.
