Jack Nicholson & Kristen Wiig To Star In Remake Of "Toni Erdmann"

Jack Nicholson turns 80 in April, and having not made a film since 2010’s How Do You Know, many in Hollywood had assumed he had retired. Indeed, as recently as last month, The Sun newspaper ran an article with the headline 'Jack Nicholson To Retire'. Almost as if in response to such headlines, it's now emerged that Nicholson will be starring in the English-language remake of German comedy Toni Erdmann, opposite Kristen Wiig.

The original Toni Erdmann, written and directed by Maren Ade, was first released in Europe in 2016, and only saw a UK release last Friday. It starred Peter Simonischek as a fake teeth-wearing prankster father, and Sandra Hüller as his highly-strung daughter who finds herself on the receiving end of her father’s practical jokes.

The film has received universal critical acclaim – including our reviewer here Empire, who called it “a weird, thoughtful, affecting treat”, awarding it the full five stars. It swept the board at the European Film Awards back in December, and will be the film to beat in the Best Foreign Language Film category at this month’s Oscars.

Adam McKay, the director behind Anchorman, Step Brothers and The Big Short, will be shepherding the project as producer, with longtime partner Will Ferrell, and Wiig also producing. Original director Maren Ade will executive produce, but there’s no word on who will helm the remake.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See MA On May 28th at 7:30 PM In DALLAS.

Everybody's welcome at Ma's. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don't curse. Never go upstairs. And call her "Ma."

But as Ma's hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie's mom, Luke Evans (Beauty …
