Morgan Freeman, Peter Segal Teaming for Comedy


Warner Bros. Pictures is picking up an untitled comedy script by Josh Cagan and Greg Coolidge to which Morgan Freeman is attached to star and Peter Segal is eying to direct, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The script, which had a working title of “Dirty Old Men,” 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 trade says the tone is described as similar to Wedding Crashers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. It adds that the studio would love to have Morgan Freeman reteam with his The Bucket List co-star Jack Nicholson on the film.
