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.

Aug 15 2014 6:53am CDT | Source: movie pilot

"I would work with Chris again in a second, playing anyone in anything. I’d play The Riddler in the next Batman, although it’d be hard to top Heath as the villain, and I’m a little hairy for tights. Plus, the Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered me The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I’d be like, “Okay, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer’s yes. Don’t pump me again, motherfu ...

Paging Mr. Bill Murray: Toronto Wants To Honor You With ‘St Vincent’ Gala, But Cannot Find You

Jul 30 2014 12:13pm CDT | Source: Deadline

To a distributor launching a prestige film in the fall, a berth in the first weekend of the Toronto Film Festival is like finding a Golden Ticket in a Wonka Bar. Toronto organizers want to do just that for the Ted Melfi-directed comedy St Vincent before its October 24 bow, and they also want to turn the premiere into a celebration honoring the work of its star, Bill Murray. Here’s the challenge: nobody has been able to get hold of him. He has no agent, he’s got an attorney ...
