Every so often Hollywood decides it would be fun to get a lot of old geezers together for a film, and the latest movie doing that is Last Vegas. It already Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro onboard, and now Deadline reports that Morgan Freeman is the latest to enter negotiations for the film.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) from a screenplay by Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love), Last Vegas is a comedy about four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. De Niro will play the party-averse Paddy Connelly, who reluctantly agrees to fly to Vegas at the request of his friends. Douglas will play Billy Gerson, a lifelong bachelor, who has finally decided to take the plunge into marriage.
There’s no news on exactly what character Freeman will play, but production is set to start soon on location in Las Vegas.
