Freeman back w/ Jack?

Warner Bros. has picked up the spec comedy script DIRTY OLD MEN with hopes of reuniting the BUCKET LIST team of Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson to star. As of now, only Freeman is attached to the film with Nicholson not yet committing (he is reportedly "aware" of the film). The script, written by Josh Cagan and Greg Coolidge, is described as a WEDDING CRASHERS type comedy about aging playboys, one of whom meets his true love. His best friend (Freeman) isn't ready to give in quite so easily and spends his time trying to break up the couple.

Pete Segal, who last directed GET SMART for WB, is attached to direct and the hope is that he can convince Nicholson, his ANGER MANAGEMENT star, to join Freeman in the film. Nicholson recently wrapped production on James Brooks' upcoming untitled film and hasn't yet decided on his next project. Freeman has INVICTUS due this December and will begin filming on the action/thriller RED with Bruce Willis early in 2010.

Extra Tidbit: Segal is also attached to direct a live-action JETSONS film.
