Peter Chelson to Direct Last Vegas


CBS Films has set Peter Chelsom to direct Last Vegas, a Dan Fogelman-scripted comedy on track to begin production early next year, reports Variety.

The comedy centers on four semi-retired baby boomers who head to Las Vegas when the last of the Coney Island buddies, a successful lawyer in his 60s, decides to tie the knot.

“These are four guys from Coney Island, who, when we meet them, think they are invincible. I think the film should attract four great stars in that age range,” Chelsom said.

While there might be comparisons made between “Vegas” and The Hangover, Chelsom said the Todd Phillips comedy helps his film, in terms of opening the door for another Vegas-set bachelor-party comedy.
