Vince Vaughn has been a popular guy of late. We're due to see him in Four Christmases, where you can also see Jon Favreau, and Couples Retreat, where he'll also star with Jon Favreau. That's right, these two are once again inseparable. Not that we blame them.
Vaughn recently got picked up by 20th Century fox to deliver a pilot and now he's thinking one more project with Sunny and 68.
Vince Vaughn for Sunny and 68
Universal Pictures has picked up Vince Vaughn to star in the spec script drama Sunny and 68.
Directed by Gavin O'Connor off a script both he and Anthony Tambakis wrote, Sunny and 68 will have Vaughn play a superstar on the poker circuit whose alcoholism and recklessness cause him to flame out on national television. Wiped out and owing $500,000 to bookies, he heads home to upstate New York for the first time in 20 years, looking to take back cash he'd been sending his mother. Instead, he finds his mother dying of cancer and raising a 5-year-old girl who is actually his daughter. Mom has been positioning his former high school girlfriend to become the girl's eventual caretaker.
It's a story of how three generations of women teach this character to become a man," said O'Connor. The title comes from the character's mother, who, despite the cold weather, insists that "it's sunny and 68."
