Freeman Tries Out Dirty Comedy

Morgan Freeman is attached to star in an untitled comedy for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Josh Cagan and Greg Coolidge’s script revolves around an aging playboy who finally meets the love of his life and his best friend and wingman for the past 40 years (Freeman) who does everything to break up the new couple.

The aim is for a “Wedding Crashers” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” style tone and the producers hope to re-team with Jack Nicholson on the project.

Peter Segal (“Get Smart”) is being eyed as a potential director. The film previously had the working title “Dirty Old Men.”
