MONTE CARLO, Monaco, June 29 (UPI) -- Jack Nicholson
and Morgan Freeman
are set to star in "The Bucket List," about two cancer patients who break out of a hospital and head for Monte Carlo.
The two terminally ill men make a wish list of things they want to do before they kick the bucket -- called the bucket list -- then take a road trip. Their adventures include racing cars, eating massive amounts of caviar and playing high stakes poker, Daily Variety reported.
The film, scripted by Justin Zackham, will be produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Alan Greisman. Rob Reiner who will direct.
Reiner had worked with Nicholson in "A Few Good Men" and wanted him in it.
