Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are set to star in a new comedy aimed at an older audience, titled And So It Goes.
The script has been written by Mark Andrus, who wrote Oscar-winning comedy As Good As It Gets, starring Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt, and the movie will be directed by Muriel's Wedding's PJ Hogan.
Michael will play a selfish and eccentric estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son abruptly drops off a granddaughter he never knew he had. With the help of his kind but firm neighbour, played by Diane, the estate agent learns to swap his selfish life for a completely different one.
Producer Alan Greisman said: "There's a large demographic and need for these kind of films as evidenced by box office successes such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, It's Complicated and Bucket List."
Filming is due to start in the spring.
