Jack Nicholson to star in next Hangover movie?

04.22.2010

We all know what happens when a movie becomes unexpectedly successful - the copycats come out of the woodwork. Such is the case with THE HANGOVER as now a number of scripts making the rounds in Hollywood are being described as "THE HANGOVER meets..." with some added little twist to theoretically make it different. One such script is LAST VEGAS, a movie that can best be described as THE HANGOVER meets GRUMPY OLD MEN. It's basically about four senior citizen friends who fly to Vegas to celebrate the bachelor party of the playboy of the group, who's finally settling down. While nothing is set in stone, CBS Films has offered the starring role in the comedy to Jack Nicholson.

Nicholson, if he agreed to star, would play Billy, the 70-ish-year-old character who's finally getting married. It's a role that seems as if it were written directly for Nicholson. The script was written by Dan Fogelson, whose untitled Steve Carell comedy is currently filming at Warner Bros. with Ryan Gosling and Julianne Moore co-starring.

Nicholson can be seen next this December in the Jim Brooks dramedy HOW DO YOU KNOW? Jack doesn't work often (the Brooks film is his first in three years) so to immediately jump back into another film may not work with the actor's schedule but stranger things have happened. Stay tuned...

Extra Tidbit: I'm currently working on my script, which can be described as THE HANGOVER meets PRECIOUS.

I'm so sick of the whole "old people acting like frat boys" concept. Why is that so funny to see sixty something men and women having sex or getting drunk? I'll pass.

I wanna see your movie, Sampson!

Unless they found the perfect bunch of old farts to costar in this thing, I can't see this being very good, and maybe too much like the set-up of "The Hangover" if not actually the same story.

The title of this headline is very misleading

I was under the impression that Nicholson was going to be the Mike Tyson of the next Hangover movie.

Im disappointed its not the actual HANGOVER sequel, but as long as its not fat Jack like in BUCKET LIST imagine the possibilities with an older cast of his peers, like Warren Beatty, Bruce Dern, Peter Fonda, Michael Douglas. etc. Too bad Hal Ashby is dead this would be his type of film, maybe Curtis Hanson would direct the project; just please no Rob Reiner.

Dammit

At first I thought this was going to say Jack Nicholson joined the cast of the sequel to Hangover. Now I'm just disappointed.

If Nicholson does get involved, then I'm totally in. Jack seems to be half-retired so any time he decides to do a movie it's already worth seeing just because of him, plus you gotta figure the guy can afford to be selective.
