'Stand Up Guys': Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Alan Arkin To Star In A Comedy About Aging Criminals
In a move that could be called genius, terrifying, horrible, hilarious, or all of the above, actors Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin have each signed on to the action-comedy "Stand Up Guys."
According to THR, the movie -- originally called "Old Timers" -- follows two aging criminals, one of whom is hired to kill his best friend. But before the hit goes down, they all decide to have one last wild ride together, which includes hitting up a brothel, stealing some cars and screaming "I need more cowbell" at the top of their lungs (we may have made up that last one). Oscar-winner Fisher Stevens ("The Cove") is set to direct.
With the talent of Pacino, Walken and Arkin (although the former two haven't exactly been up to snuff in recent years), this film could turn into the feel-good elderly bad-guy comedy of the year. Or at least be better than "The Bucket List"?
"Stand Up Guys," which is set to shoot in April, currently has release date.
