Stephen Dorff is saying things. Now that he’s poised for a comeback thanks to his starring turn in Sofia Coppola‘s Somewhere, he’s looking toward the future by not appearing in crappy movies anymore. And what do you do with a sudden influx of critical acclaim? Parlay that into working on crappy movies with Adam Sandler, of course.
Dorff is currently developing and writing a comedy for Happy Madison, with the hopes of drafting good buddy Jack Nicholson to co-star. Because if there’s one thing on Nicholson’s bucket list, it’s appear in Untitled Stephen Dorff Comedy Project. He’s mum on the details, but had this to say:
“It’s a very funny comedy idea for me and him set in the South of France. We’re not in script form yet but I wrote the treatment and [the idea has] already [been] bought it so as soon as I get break from working, I’ll turn that into a script and I’ll go and tell Jack,” he says, knocking on the wooden table between us, “‘Jack you have to make this with me…’ and he’ll say, ‘Dorff, come on, let’s do it.'”
He then quieted the voices in his head by smearing a lipstick Joker smile across his face and adding, “Wait til they get a load of me. Wait til they ALL get a load of me.” Then he just looked out the window and it was weird. (The Independent)
