Jack Nicholson on 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off': These people are trying to kill me

By WILLIAM C. TROTT, United Press International

Jack Nicholson doesn't like the trend he sees developing in Hollywood. In fact, 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' left him at a loss.

'Well, that movie made me feel totally irrelevant to anything that any audience could want and 119 years old,' he said in a New York Times interview.

'Believe me, everyone else watching it liked it. And you know, I literally walked out of there thinking my days are numbered. These people are trying to kill me.'

He's afraid more serious movies, like the one he wants to make about Napoleon, will be turned down by Hollywood in favor of lighter 'Ferris Bueller'-type movies.

'I've invested a lot in the subject,' he says. 'I sort of look at it like Shaw, Nietzsche, those kind of thinkers did, who consider Napoleon 'the' man.'

Nicholson owns the rights to the book 'The Murder of Napoleon' but hasn't decided if he wants to play the role or just produce.
