Don Scardino Plans on Going in Style

First announced last fall, New Line Cinema has plans to remake the 1978 caper comedy Going in Style. Deadline now reports that they’ve attached The Incredible Burt Wonderstone director Don Scardino to helm.

Directed by Martin Brest, the original film starred George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as a trio of senior citizens who decide to rob a bank and take their winnings to Las Vegas.

The script for the new version arrives from screenwriter Ted Melfi, the writer/director behind the upcoming St. Vincent de Van Nuys, set up at 20th Century Fox with Bill Murray in the lead.
