Jack Nicholson & Kristen Wiig to star in the Toni Erdmann remake


Paramount Pictures has acquired remake rights to the Oscar-nominated film, Toni Erdmann, with Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig set to star.

The original film was directed by Maren Ade and starred Sandra Huller & Peter Simonischek. It followed a practical joking father who tries to reconnect with his hard working daughter by creating an outrageous alter ego and posing as her CEO’s life coach.

This will be Nicholson’s first film since 2010 in How Do You Know.

The English language remake will be produced by the Gary Sanchez Productions offshoot Gloria Sanchez Productions. Jessica Elbuam, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will produce alongside Jonas Dornbach and Janine Jackowski. The original film’s director, Maren Ade, will serve as executive producer.
