    Jack Nicholson, who hasn’t appeared in a feature film since 2010, will star in an English-language remake of the Oscar-nominated film “Toni Erdmann.”

    Sources tell Variety Paramount Pictures has acquired the remake rights to the acclaimed German film with Nicholson attached to play the title character.

    Thoughts?

    Nicholson will probably do a good job, and it is sure to get Nicholson another nom. The real question is, will the film be adapted faithfully with dark, German humor, or will it be shamelessly ripped apart to make way for American humor. Will the critics adore “Tony Erdman” like the adored “Toni Erdmann”?

    The nightmare is casting Lawrence as the daughter. You know where this is going! Much more preferable if they went with Chastain instead.

    No, the casting of the daughter hasn’t been confirmed. M was saying it would be a nightmare if Lawrence were cast.

    Hathaway and Demme back together please. That could make this at least not insufferable.

    I deleted my comment to M after rereading what you wrote. Hopefully she’s not even remotely considered. JL is an ok actress, but not cast-her-in-everything ok.

    Why would they already develop a remake for a movie that was released within the last year or so?

    LFMAO! As proven by The Help, Zero Dark Thirty, Interstellar, and The Martian, Jessica Chastain CAN’T ACT, she is the generic, bland white actor, like Sam Worthington or (EXCEPT Suicide Squad) Jai Courtney that Hollywood casts to avoid having to cast POC.

    Chastain’s 2 nominations came only because of white privilege, and the first one also because they forgot to check off Bryce Dallas Howard for her superior Help work instead, and the also the 2nd because Zero Dark Thirty had an air of cultural “importance surrounding the film in general, leading her to ride in on its coattails.

    I honestly don’t think they’ll cast J-Law though. She was great in Winter’s Bone, Silver Linings Playbook, and even The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but I think people have gotten overexposed to her, like with Joy and the recent bomb Passengers.

    I’d really love to see Tina Fey cast as Nicholson’s daughter, what do you all think?

    Jack Nicholson returning to acting after a semi-imposed retirement is one of the biggest film casting news so far this year! I’m thrilled to see him work again, and I could easily see this role netting him another Oscar nomination if it’s all done properly. I’m anxiously awaiting more casting news (especially who gets Sandra Hüller’s role; it’s going to be a hotly contested bloodbath for this one knowing all that’s at stake), screenwriter, and especially director.

    Sure, take the best thing to happen to cinema last year, and tear away at the greatness. Tear my heart out, while you’re at it.

    If Jessica Chastain can’t act, then she is damn good at pretending to do it.

    If Amy Adams wants to avenge her Oscar snub and finally winnnn, then she knows what she needs to do now. Get your agent on the damn phone like ASAP!

    i think Saoirse Ronan should take Sandra Huller’s role for this remake.
