David O. Russell & Vince Vaughn Teaming Up for 'Old St. Louis'

Vince Vaughn

As we're all still waiting for The Fighter to be release sometime down the road, director David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees) is still setting up his next project. Though there's been talk that Russell may direct the adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Natalie Portman, Deadline is reporting the filmmaker is working on getting a project together with Vince Vaughn. Apparently Vaughn/Russell are in discussions with Universal to collaborate on Old St. Louis - the story of a traveling salesman (Vaughn) who has been an absentee father, and how his life changes when his daughter becomes part of his new life.

In addition, apparently Chloe Moretz (of Kick-Ass & Let Me In) is already on the list of potential actresses to play Vaughn's daughter in the film (but I'm sure every project with an adolescent girl in it is trying to snag Moretz for a role). This project would be Russell's immediate follow-up to The Fighter, but let's hope it gets off the ground and into theaters faster that The Fighter and his other much delayed project Nailed. Vaughn and Russell are an interesting pairing, and it will be nice to see the former get back to something with more substance rather than just another fast-talking comedy. We'll keep you updated as it develops. Interested?

come on..........this basic story (of absentee parents' life changing when child enters the scene) has been the plot for at least a dozen movies and told in as many ways as need be. do we need another version of this?..........NO - so i'm not interested.
