Vaunted cinema auteur Rob Reiner has decided on what his next masterpiece to hit theaters will be: Originally titled The Third Act, the film is now Summer at Dog Dave’s, which, let’s face it, is a pretty hilarious title. Anyway, Virginia Madsen and Kenan Thompson are in talks to appear in coveted roles in the movie, which is also set to star Morgan Freeman. Here’s a plot synopsis, sure to be analyzed by cinephiles and historians for years to come:

“Freeman stars as a wheelchair-bound author of Western novels whose alcoholism is making him lose his passion for writing. Madsen will play his new neighbor, a single mother going through a divorce who has three daughters. The family strikes up a relationship with the novelist and helps him rediscover his talent and find his passion for writing again.”

Madsen is stepping in for Annette Benning, who was originally set to play the female lead. Thompson will be playing Freeman’s “helpful nephew,” which should be good for a few laughs. (Variety)
