Vince Vaughn is in negotiations to star in Starbuck, DreamWorks’ remake of a 2011 French-Canadian comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Ken Scott, who wrote and directed the original, is writing the script for the English-language studio adaptation and will direct. Original producer Andre Rouleau also is back.
According to the studio, the film centers “on a middle-aged man (Vaughn) whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has fathered 533 children through sperm donation. When a few hundred of the children express an irrepressible need to meet their father, he must decide whether or not he will step up and reveal his identity."
Scott Mednick will executive produce.
Vaughn next stars in The Watch, Fox’s sci-fi action comedy formerly known as Neighborhood Watch, which also stars Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill. The movie opens July 27.
