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 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.
