Billy Crystal will play a widower looking for love in Winter's Discontent

Billy Crystal is apparently in talks to star in comedy Winter's Discontent.

The When Harry Met Sally star is attached to play a widower who moves into a retirement community where the people have a reputation for being more active, in the hope of reinvigorating his love life, reported Deadline.

The Muppets Take Manhattan and In And Out director Frank Oz will direct the movie, from a Black List script by Paul Fruchbom.

Billy, last seen in family comedy Parental Guidance with Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei, will next reprise his voice role as fuzzy monster Mike Wazowski alongside John Goodman in Monsters Inc sequel, Monsters University.

The 65-year-old actor found fame after starring opposite Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, and has also starred in comedies such as City Slickers, Analyse This and The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle.
