What do you get if you were to cross Grumpy Old Men with The Hangover? Well, CBS Films is hoping that answer is LASt VEGAS, a comic tale of four friends from the 1950s who reunite and trek to Vegas to marry off Billy, the lifelong bachelor of the group.
And who does CBS Films hope to fill the shoes of this geriatric playboy? Well, none other that Mr. Geriatric Playboy himself Jack Nicholson. According to Vulture, CBS Films put out an offer to Nicholson yesterday to topline the comedy.
No other cast is currently attached, but Vulture throws out gray-haired stalwarts Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman as possible dream cast mates for Nicholson. I figure if we're shooting for the stars, why not see if you can get Sean Connery out of retirement? Or perhaps Burt Reynolds?
