The always-busy Morgan Freeman is set to star in a new Peter Segal (â€œGet Smartâ€)-directed Warner Bros comedy, said to be in the vein of â€œWedding Crashersâ€ and â€œThe 40 Year-Old Virginâ€.
And if everything goes well, Freemanâ€™s â€œBucket Listâ€ co-star Jack Nicholson will be joining him in the laffer.
Josh Cagan and Greg Coolidgeâ€™s script, which had a working title of “Dirty Old Men,” revolves around an aging playboy who finally meets the love of his life and his best friend and wingman for the past 40 years (Freeman) who does everything to break up the new couple.
Nicholson is said to be aware of the script, but hasnâ€™t yet had an official meeting to discuss coming aboard.
