'Fatal Attraction,' the classic flick starring Glenn Close as an obsessive woman who can't let go of her one-night stand with Michael Douglas, is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary -- and there's much to celebrate. Aside from turning "fatal attraction" into an overused phrase describing the same sort of warped relationship shown on screen, the film has presently grossed more than $320 million worldwide, was nominated for six Academy Awards and scarred the bejeezes out of unfaithful husbands everywhere.
But the question is, Would the film have been just as successful if the original version was released to theaters?
And for his next trick, Michael Douglas will play former president (and former actor) Ronald Reagan in the upcoming indie film 'Reykjavik' from director Mike Newell. Casting for the jelly beans is still underway.
You can say one thing for sure about director Jon Turteltaub: the man sure knows how to build a cast. Just look at the list of names headlining the 'National Treasure' director's upcoming comedy 'Last Vegas': Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. That's four Oscar winners. Actually, make it five: Mary Steenburgen has joined them.
Who wants to see a bunch of old dudes party like it's 1999 on the big screen? We do! And the gathering is going to happen sooner rather than later for the upcoming geriatric 'Hangover'-type comedy 'Last Vegas.'
Robert De Niro has officially joined 'Last Vegas,' which would have him among four older gentleman traveling to the city of sin for a bachelor party. One imagines that hijinks and supposed hilarity will follow. Michael Douglas is already confirmed to play the bachelor, the other two gentlemen have yet to be cast.
Michael Douglas once played a high-rolling New York City corporate raider in 'Wall Street' and won an Oscar for it. Now he's headed for another town where the money flies fast and loose in the upcoming comedy, 'Last Vegas.'
