Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri Martino could celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday by reading pages from their new film, "Mother's Day."

Despite the holiday-themed title -- a recent Hollywood trope that has become synonymous with star-studded omnibus romcom tripe -- "Mother's Day" is actually an indie drama about mothers and daughters that just so happens to take place on Mother's Day. Paul Duddridge, a former comedy agent in Britain, will write and direct.

This isn't the first time the mother-daughter duo have appeared together onscreen. Sarandon and Amurri played mother and daughter in "The Banger Sisters" back in 2002. As THR notes, Amurri also appeared as a younger version of Sarandon's character in "Dead Man Walking."

Amurri Martino's father is Italian director Franco Amurri. She married soccer player Kyle Martino in 2011.

Sarandon last appeared in the critically acclaimed "Jeff, Who Lives At Home." Amurri Martino will next appear in "That's My Boy."
