Mike Nichols May Return With ‘One Last Thing Before I Go’

Written by on April 24, 2013 

Having only helmed two features in the last decade, Mike Nichols is a director who is clearly meticulous regarding his upcoming projects. With his erotic drama Closer in 2004 and then his political dramedy Charlie Wilson’s War in 2007, we’ve now got an update on what his next feature might be.

According to The Wrap, Nichols is aiming to reteam with J.J. Abrams for a film titled One Last Thing Before I Go. With Abrams scripting Nichols’ 1991 Harrison Ford-led drama Regarding Henry, his Bad Robot company is now producing this drama, which comes from a novel by Jonathan Tropper. Word has it that Daniel Craig is being courted for the lead role, but the talks are quite early at this stage.

Having also written This Is Where I Leave You — which is gearing up for production at Warner Bros. — Tropper’s story follows a divorced man who has made many mistakes in his live and gets the news that he will die if he doesn’t have heart surgery. He declines and decides to become a better man. Nichols isn’t formally attached yet, but it sounds like the kind of film he could knock out of the park, so hopefully we’ll see him behind the camera again soon.

Would you like this to be Nichols’ next movie? Have you read the novel?
