Freeman, De Niro to Star in 'Last Vegas'

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5 (UPI) — Production has begun on “Last Vegas,” a Las Vegas-set comedy starring Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.

This marks the first time the four Hollywood icons will appear together on the big screen.

“National Treasure” and “While You Were Sleeping” filmmaker Jon Turteltaub is directing the movie, which is set for release Dec. 20, 2013.

CBS Films and Good Universe said Monday principal photography has begun in Las Vegas and will continue to shoot in Atlanta. Written by Dan Fogelman, the film co-stars Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco and Roger Bart.

“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,” a synopsis said.
