Jack Nicholson 'set to return to big screen'
Jack Nicholson could return to the big screen in an English-language remake of the Oscar-nominated German comedy Toni Erdmann, news reports say.
Variety said that Nicholson and Kristen Wiig are attached to star in the movie, which is about a man with a taste for practical jokes who tries to reconnect with his overworked daughter and get her to lighten up.
Nicholson last appeared in a film in 2010 in James L Brooks’s How Do You Know and has been considered by many to be retired from film acting.
The 79-year-old star has won two Oscars for best actor, first for One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest in the 1970s and two decades later for the romantic comedy As Good As It Gets.
Toni Erdmann from writer-director Maren Ade, became somewhat of an international sensation after its Cannes premiere in May 2016.
The film is up for a foreign-language Oscar this year. Ade will executive produce the remake, but no director has been set.
