Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler's 1996 buddy movie First Wives Club is set to become the latest film to hit the stage as a musical, thanks to Motown's biggest hitmakers.

Rock + Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Motown legends Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier are working on an original score for the stage spectacular - which is scheduled to debut in San Diego, California next summer - on its way to a Broadway run.

Holland-Dozier-Holland are responsible for some of the soul world's biggest hits - they penned tunes for The Supremes and the Four Tops, among others.

Both the 1996 movie and the new musical are adaptations of Olivia Goldsmith's novel.
