De Havilland: Movie Comeback Aged 90

Screen legend OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND is considering making her movie comeback - at the grand age of 90. The double Oscar winner has been tempted out of retirement by a film adaptation about the life BROOKE ASTOR - a 104-year-old society philanthropist at the centre of a legal row with her son. The GONE WITH THE WIND star last appeared on the big screen in THE FIFTH MUSKETEER 27 years ago (79). A source told The Daily Express newspaper, "The screenplay is ready and everyone is waiting for the nod from Olivia. "MERYL STREEP is interested in the role of Astor's daughter-in-law CHARLENE. "If Olivia agrees, it will be one of the most eagerly watched screen comebacks in Hollywood history."
