Stephen Dorff writing a comedy to star Jack Nicholson
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Yes, Stephen Dorff is back on the Hollywood scene! After his starring role in the upcoming Sofia Coppola film SOMEWHERE (coming to theaters December 22, 2010), Dorff is staying on top of his game by selling an idea to Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions for a comedy starring him and Jack Nicholson (he hopes). Here is what he has to say about his project:
I like to make movies about characters. I like smaller films, that’s what I love to do. I love acting, number one, but I think now I’ll get more into producing and make some more films, à la Felon, maybe even a little bigger. I have a comedy idea that I came up with that I’m doing with Adam Sandler’s company that I want to do with Jack Nicholason, who’s still a good friend of mine. It’s a very funny comedy idea for me and him set in the South of France. We’re not in script form yet but I wrote the treatment and they’ve already bought it so as soon as I get a break from working, I’ll turn that into a script and I’ll go and tell Jack, ‘Jack you have to make this with me…’ and he’ll say, ‘Dorff, come on, let’s do it.’ And I’ll get Sony to give him his $15m and then we’ll go and make the movie – because he likes money. Just the way I like money too.
So, obviously Dorff is still in the planning stages of this film and doesn’t have Nicholson on quite yet, but he sounds pretty confident that Jack will come aboard no problem, right? We’ll see what happens but until then we’re just gonna have to catch Stephen Dorff in the upcoming SOMEWHERE.
