Jack Nicholson courted for The Judge

Nov 14 2012, 4:24am CST | by

Jack Nicholson is being courted to play Robert Downey Jr.'s father in his next project, legal drama 'The Judge'.

Jack Nicholson is being courted to play Robert Downey Jr.'s father in 'The Judge'.
Warner Bros. has reportedly made an unofficial offer to the 75-year-old veteran actor to star in the drama/comedy, being developed by Robert's Team Downey production company.
The film will see a successful lawyer, played by Robert, returning to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover his estranged father - the town's judge, who is stricken with Alzheimer's disease - is the main murder suspect.
The lawyer decides to represent his dad in court, and in the process finds something new and more decent within himself and reconnects with the family he walked out on years before.
Jack is notoriously picky when it comes to the acting roles he takes - having only made only seven films in the last decade - so it may be hard to get him on board, but sources are hopeful he will commit and say he is due to meet Robert this week.
The script was originally written by Nick Schenk and is to be given a rewrite by Bill Dubuque. David Dobkin is rumoured to be in the frame to co-produce and direct.
Robert has recently finished filming 'Iron Man 3' and is said to want 'The Judge' to be his next film.

The Best Movies Made from Bad Concepts

Jun 1 2014 7:31pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

The Best Movies Made from Bad ConceptsA very special breed of movies exists. Many flicks take a great concept and do their best to live up to it…but usually ones with a bad concept just end up being bad. However, in rare cases, the execution is so great a bad concept ends up being entertaining. This isn’t a “so bad it’s good” list, because those are about laughing at the culmination of numerous failed factors. These are the times the impossible has been done ...

Another Bulger biopic, starring Matt Damon as the octogenarian gangster, was in devel ...
