Las Vegas / Morgan Freeman

Now this sounds like a geriatric party I want to check out. Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro are already attached to the comedy Last Vegas from director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure), and now a third veteran actor is being tossed into the mix. Deadline reports the incomparable Morgan Freeman is in negotiations to star in the film written by Dan Fogleman (Crazy Stupid Love, My Mother's Curse) and sounds like The Hangover for grandparents about a quartet of retired boomers who are called upon for a Vegas bachelor party by their friend, a ladies man finally settling down and marrying a woman half his age.

That's three out of the four main characters cast, and though Christopher Walken has also been rumored for a role, we've yet to receive confirmation on that front. It's not clear if this is going to be an R-rated comedy (my fingers are crossed), but because of the older skewering demographic, a PG-13 rating is more likely. Despite the similarities to The Hangover, this was a script that originally sold to CBS Films for $1 million in a very high paying deal for Fogleman back in 2008, before The Hangover had even hit theaters. Hopefully it packs as much of a punch of comedy and drama as Crazy Stupid Love.
