Jack Nicholson in Talks to Join Robert Downey Jr. in <i>The Judge</i>

Like many septuagenarians, Jack Nicholson is getting picky in his old age. He hasn’t appeared on the big screen since 2010’s How Do You Know, the actor is rumored to be considering a role in the upcoming Robert Downey Jr.-fronted The Judge.

The dramedy—directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) and written by Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) with a rewrite by Bill Dubuque (2011 Blacklist finalist The Accountant)—stars Downey as a big-city attorney who gets pulled back home after his mother dies, only to learn that his estranged dad is suspected of murder.

THR reports that an offer has been extended to Nicholson to play the father. Nicholson is expected to meet with Downey this week to discuss the project.
