With a couple of duds in his pocket over the past few years, Vince Vaughn is looking to impress audiences with this summer’s The Watch. After that year, he still has his very anticipated reunion with Owen Wilson for fans to look forward to with The Internship. Now, the actor could be racking up another future project in the form of a comedy remake that finds the actor as a father with a large amount of children.
Variety reports Vaughn is in negotiations to star in Starbuck, a remake of a French-Canadian comedy hit with the same name, which Dreamworks is currently developing. Ken Scott, who helmed the original, will write and direct the American version, with production aimed for sometime later this year.
The film follows “a middle-aged man whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has fathers 533 children through sperm donation. When a few hundred of the children express an irrepressible need to meet their father, the donor codenamed Starbuck, he must decide whether he will step up and reveal his identity”.
There’s no word as to who else will star in the film, andStarbuck could possibly hit by late summer of 2013.
This is Vaughn’s second remake project under the actor’s belt, as he’s currently developing a big screen feature of the crime series The Rockford Files under his Wild West production banner, with the possibility of him starring as well.
