Susan Sarandon spotted in Buckhead during "Bad Moms" filming

"A Bad Moms Christmas," which has been filming in Buckhead, reunites  Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn as Amy, Kiki and Carla. Joining the fun this time will be new trio playing the bad moms' own moms:  Cheryl Hines (Kiki’s mom), with Christine Baranski (Amy’s mom) and Susan Sarandon (Carla’s mom).

Sarandon enjoyed dinner at Bistro Niko, located in the heart of Buckhead, the other night. After a delectable dinner including the mushroom and gruyere tarte with oysters and a glass of white Bordeaux, she posed for a photo with General Manager Sam Than.

Sarandon, known for her iconic roles in "Thelma and Louise" and "Bull Durham," was here previously for the 2014 indie “The Last of Robin Hood,” about the final years of swashbuckling Hollywood star Errol Flynn.  Kevin Kline played the womanizing Flynn, teetering through his boozy twilight with just enough stamina left to hit on underage starlets, Dakota Fanning played Flynn’s much-younger love interest Beverly Aadland, and Sarandon played Beverly’s opportunistic stage mother, Florence.

From STXfilms: "A Bad Moms Christmas follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holidays for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers."

It's due out in November.
