A new report alleges a movie based on Goldie Hawn’s experiences on “Laugh In” is in development, and Billie Lourd is in talks to play her. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively set the record straight on the inaccurate claim.

According to the National Enquirer, both Hawn and Amy Schumer, the stars of “Snatched,” are planning to pitch a film based on Hawn’s time on “Laugh In,” a sketch comedy television show, with Lourd as the leading lady. A so-called “source” tells the often disproven outlet, “After pumping Goldie about her bizarre experiences on stage and backstage, Amy knew it was a no-brainer.”

The magazine’s dubious insider goes on to purport that the pair considered Kate Hudson, Hawn’s daughter, to take on the role as her “fresh-faced” mom, “but Kate will be 40 before cameras can start rolling.” Instead, “they’re now set to sign Carrie Fisher’s gorgeous daughter, Billie Lourd, who’s already at stardom’s door after signing on to the new ‘Star Wars,'” concludes the tipster.

But Gossip Cop investigated into the Enquirer’s questionable report, and a rep for Lourd assures us the entire article is “not true.” Fisher’s daughter is not in talks to play Hawn in a movie about her time on “Laugh In,” and any claims made otherwise are simply false. The story is 100 percent made up.

Naturally, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the supermarket tabloid for fabricating stories about the young star. In January, we corrected the publication for falsely alleging Lourd’s family were afraid she might rush into marriage with boyfriend Taylor Lautner. Much like that untrue claim, this latest one is equally bogus.
