    She's such a gem.

    Cher is set to play Donna's mother in the flashbacks.

    Reminder: Donna's mom basically disowned her, so don't expect Cher to play nice.

    This will be Cher's first time on the big screen since 2010's Burlesque...

    ...and her first movie with Meryl Streep since 1983's Silkwood.
