In honor of their years creating memorable characters and providing powerful performances, seasoned actors Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline have been rewarded with a trip to Las Vegas, compliments of 3 Ninjas, Cool Runnings, and National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub. Once there, they'll be spending roughly 90 minutes referencing their ages, pretending to be drunk, and dropping prescription medication names, and to top it off, their fading lives will hit simultaneous peaks with a meet-and-greet with at least the LMFAO guy with the hair, if not also the other one. You can join in on all the excitement this November, but since it's understandably hard to wait that long, here's a little preview:

Remember when Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline won Academy Awards? Remember when De Niro used to be able to almost form an actual smile, and looked slightly less like he was waiting to be spoon-fed his mush? Well, forget all that, because now those once-esteemed actors are going to a Vegas bachelor party, in a film that will assumedly play like The Hangover but with more reminders of erectile dysfunction and imminent death. Here's a first look at the comedy's cast together, arm-in-arm and beaming at the knowledge that even the fucking Bucket List made $175 million. Now give Bob his mushies.
Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Morgan Freeman have finally figured out who they're taking with them on their 60s+ Vegas getaway package.

- Ryan Reynolds is reportedly now the frontrunner to take over the Christopher Lambert role in the long-developing remake of Highlander. Great news for everyone who saw Wolverine and thought, "That was great and all, but could I please see Ryan Reynolds in just one more terrible film involving swords and beheading?"
- Writer/director Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones will star Liam Neeson as a former drunk cop turned recovering unlicensed P.I. on the hunt for the kidnapped wife of a drug dealer. Hey, I bet I know what particular set of skills he will use for this job!
- Morgan Freeman has joined Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas on Last Vegas, a comedy about a wild Las Vegas bachelor party that will be amusing because the cast is familiar and very old. There's still a fourth old, familiar lead to be cast; try to act surprised when Al Pacino inevitably gets that.
- Nicolas Cage and Mickey Rourke are in talks to join Marble City, a film about a just-released convict on the hunt for revenge. So that should have a fun press junket.
- So here's how Jason Statham will look playing the eponymous role in Parker: like the bad guy trying to snatch up the old farmhouse and drill for oil in every family film about that happening.
- In a new interview with Ryan Gosling, the super-awesome driver reportedly revealed what will put a stop to his acting career, saying, "I'll make movies until I make babies." Did the intense romance of The Notebook not make enough babies for you, Gos?
- Prison Break's Robert Knepper has joined R.I.P.D., and will play a spirit called a "deado," whatever the fuck that means.
- Jon Turteltaub, director of our National Treasures, is attached to direct Last Vegas, a comedy about four old men meeting up in Las Vegas for an elderly bachelor party that leads to two of group competing for the affections of a lounge singer. Finally, a middle ground between The Hangover and Grumpy Old Men.
The Hangover's guys-being-immature-in-Vegas premise and the old-guys-competing-for-a-lady comedy of Grumpy Old Men shall no longer remain mutually exclusive. Vulture is reporting Jack Nicholson may engage in more Bucket List-style old men fun in LASt VEGAS, a new film that cleverly blends the city of Las Vegas with the word "last" (as a reminder of the characters' impending deaths):
Vulture has learned that the offer went out yesterday to Jack Nicholson to star in LASt VEGAS, a Grumpy Old Men meets The Hangover project from CBS Films ...
VEGAS follows four estranged male childhood friends from the fifties who reunite in Vegas to finally marry off Billy, the lifelong unmarried playboy of the group, who — fittingly — might be played by Nicholson.
The conflict instead comes when both Billy the bachelor and Paddy, the widower of the group, begin vying for the affections of the same lounge singer.
Whatever it takes to keep our Viagra joke populations from becoming overcrowded.
