LOS ANGELES, June 3 (UPI) -- Hollywood movie actor Jack Nicholson is in talks to star in James L. Brooks's upcoming, as-yet-untitled romantic comedy.
Brooks directed Nicholson in "Terms of Endearment" and "As Good As It Gets." Both films earned Nicholson Oscars.
The entertainment industry trade newspaper said Bill Murray was originally discussed for the role Nicholson is now in negotiations to play. Murray reportedly lost interest in the project, which Brooks also wrote and is producing.
