She’s Your Auntie Mame, Alright!

Seems like the new Mame is cookin’ with oil now – and still with Tilda Swinton.

The Academy Award-winning star of the stylish must-see of earlier this summer, A Bigger Splash, has been attached to a remake of Auntie Mame for four long years now, but it looks like things are now moving in the right direction. Forward.

It multi-hyphenate Annie Mumolo (she co-wrote Bridesmaids – all the way to an Oscar nomination – as well as the story for Joy) reportedly is writing the latest adaptation of the novel-cum-stage play-turned-film-cum-stage musical-turned-film musical that would see Swinton take on the role of gay icon Mame Dennis.

Oh this has to get done ASAP.

Especially if Luca Guadagnino (Swinton’s Bigger Splash and I Am Love director) still gets to helm, as was the plan back in 2012.
