Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin make up quite a cast of acting luminaries. Now THR reports they have all joined the action-comedy Stand Up Guys. News of the project first surface back in February 2009, when it was known as Old Timers.
The film is about an aging hitman, who is considering taking a job where he has to kill his friend. He reunites with another old criminal cohort for one last night of recklessness, where they ponder their life choices while running from the police. It isn’t clear which roles the three actors will portray.
Fisher Stevens (yes, the guy from Short Circuit) is directing Stand Up Guys from a script by Noah Haidle. Production is scheduled to begin this April in Los Angeles.
