Vince Vaughn is in negotiations to star in DreamWork's upcoming remake of the 2011 Canadian hit Starbuck, Variety reports.
The original film was directed by Ken Scott and written by Scott and Ken Petit and starred Patrick Huard as David Wozniak, an adult slacker who learns that, as a sperm donor with the alias "Starbuck", he's fathered over 500 children. When a large group of them petition the sperm bank to reveal his identity, David has to decide whether or not to come forward while, in his personal life, his own girlfriend makes a decision about whether or not he should be the father of their potential child.
Scott will write and direct the English-language remake which is targeted to film later this year.
Vaughn can soon be seen in The Watch and is planing to re-team with his Wedding Crashers co-star Owen Wilson for The Internship.
