With the success of The Hangover, as well as geriatric-centered projects (for evidence just see a sequel for The Best Exotic Marigold being put into place), CBS Films have done the no-brainer and put the two together for Last Vegas. Directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) and written by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), the film follows Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline and Michael Douglas as best friends who throw a bachelor party for their last single member. We’ve now got the first still from the film thanks to the official Facebook page, which looks like it’s from a glossy postcard from Sin City. Also starring Bre Blair, Romany Malco and Mary Steenburgen, check out the image above.
We’ve also get still from a film Freeman is definitely not be reprising his role in. As reported over the summer, Inception star Ken Watanabe, who actually worked with Eastwood on Letters from Iwo Jima, has led a remake of Unforgiven from WB’s Japanese division. Set in the same time period of 1880, Watanabe, taking over the Eastwood role is a samurai with a violent past, who lives on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido with his aboriginal wife, but is brought out of retirement for one last job. Titled Yurusarezaru Mono, which translates to the more expounded A Thing That Can’t Be Forgiven, Lee Sang-Il is directing and his Villain star Akira Emoto takes the Freeman role, while Koichi Sato (The Magic Hour) is portray Gene Hackman‘s character. We’ve now got the first batch of stills, which can be seen below thanks to Twitch.
Last Vegas arrives on December 20th, 2013 while the Unforgiven remake should hit theaters next year.
