Morgan Freeman Goes For Broke With Robert De Niro In 'Last Vegas'George Roush |
Morgan Freeman, who at last count, has starred in approximately 24,681 movies, is about to add one more to a resume that unrolls off the desk, out the door, and across six states. The popular actor will be tackling one last hangover in the upcoming comedy 'Last Vegas.'
'Last Vegas' is the story of four retired friends who make a bachelor party trip to Las Vegas to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of their friend who is marrying a woman half his age. Already on board is Michael Douglas as the aging groom-to-be, and Robert De Niro, who will be playing the Best Man. No word on who the fourth person is in the cast but we're betting Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Martin have been getting voice mail messages from their agents.
Jon Turtletaub of 'National Treasure' fame will direct what appears to be 'The Hangover' for senior citizens. At least that's what it should be called if CBS Films wants to market the film in a way to grab a younger crowd.
Freeman will next be seen in this summer's blockbuster 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
We'll keep you updated on who they find to play the fourth bingo buddy in this going-of-age comedy. Who do you think should join the cast? Let us know in the comments below.
