CBS Films And Good Universe Begin Principal Photography On LAST VEGAS
Ready for an all-star lineup? For the first time ever in a movie, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline will be coming to a theater near you next year, December 20th, 2013, straight from fabulous LAST VEGAS. Think THE HANGOVER for the big kids. CBS Films and Good Universe announced today that principal photography on the comedy LAST VEGAS has commenced on the Las Vegas strip and will continue to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia and at ARIA Resort & Casino.
The ensemble comedy follows four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. De Niro will play the party-averse Paddy Connelly, who reluctantly agrees to fly to Vegas at the request of his friends. Douglas will play Billy Gerson, a lifelong bachelor, who has finally decided to take the plunge. Freeman is set to play Archie Clay, an army veteran, who looks to escape the watchful eyes of his son and daughter-in-law and accompany his best friends on a trip to Vegas.
Kline, Freeman, De Niro and Douglas have garnered a total of six Oscar® wins and 14 nominations and accumulated over an estimated $16.6 billion at the worldwide box office. It will be good to see these four together in a film next holiday season.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure, While You Were Sleeping) from a screenplay by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled), LAST VEGAS co-stars Oscar®-winner Mary Steenburgen (The Help), Jerry Ferrara (Think Like A Man), Romany Malco (Weeds) and Roger Bart (Political Animals).
