Jack Nicholson, the iconic Oscar winner and legendary lothario, has not retired. Thank God!
The 79-year-old actor will return to the screen for the first time since 2010 to star in an English-language remake of Toni Erdmann, Variety reported.
For those who have not yet seen the original German film—which is nominated for a best foreign language Oscar this month—know that the project seems like a perfect fit for Nicholson. Written and directed by Maren Ade, the movie centers on “a practical joking father (played originally by Peter Simonischek) who tries to reconnect with his hard working daughter (Sandra Hüller) by creating an outrageous alter ego and posing as her CEO’s life coach.”
The film received rave reviews after its Cannes Film Festival premiere last year, including one from the exacting A.O. Scott of the New York Times, who offered this description of the character Nicholson will take on.
It was Nicholson’s idea to take on the role, according to Variety, which reports that the actor “was a huge fan of the original and approached Paramount’s Brad Grey with the idea.”
The studio has not yet chosen a director, writer, or actress to co-star with Nicholson. The adaptation does already have a team of producers, though, including The Big Short director Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Maren Ade.
Toni Erdmann will be the first film for Nicholson since 2010’s James L. Brooks dramedy How Do You Know. In the years since that role, Nicholson was rumored to have retired from acting. But in a 2013 interview, Nicholson clarified that he hasn’t quit acting—he’s just quit hitting on women.

After news of Nicholson’s big return to the screen broke Tuesday, the trades began reporting another major casting coup: Kristen Wiig will reportedly join the American Toni Erdmann remake as the daughter of Nicholson’s character, the part originally played by Sandra Hüller.

Jack Nicholson will turn 80 this spring, and though the last movie he did came out in 2010, he has never officially retired. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t retired, according to Peter Fonda, with whom Nicholson has been close since the two made “Easy Rider.”
“I think he is basically retired,” Fonda told Page Six at this month’s BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party, held annually in Los Angeles. “I don’t want to speak for him, but he has done a lot of work and he has done very well as a person financially.”
Four years ago, rumors circulated that the actor was slowing down due to memory loss, but those claims were swiftly denied by his representatives. “Sometimes people have a reason that you don’t know, and it’s not for me to ask,” said Fonda. “I don’t call him up and say, ‘Johnny,’ I call him Johnny Hop, ‘What are you doing?’ I would say, ‘How are you, how do you feel?’”
The last three films on Nicholson’s IMDB page are James L. Brooks’ forgettable “How Do You Know,” the doubly infamous Casey Affleck/Joaquin Phoenix vanity project “I’m Still Here” (recently in the news when allegations of sexual harassment against Affleck resurfaced), and Rob Reiner’s “The Bucket List,” with Morgan Freeman.
Nicholson is the most Oscar-nominated actor in history, winning three for “As Good As It Gets,” “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” and “Terms Of Endearment.” Fonda speculated that a singularly fantastic role or project might entice Nicholson out of hibernation, to cap off his hat with one more feather.

Jack Nicholson rarely ventures out of his home these days, but he recently visited an exhibit of photographs of the ‘Rolling Stones’ at LA’s Taschen Gallery.
While there, he kept a low profile. “He didn’t want to draw much attention,” artist Katrien Van der Schueren, an eyewitness, tells ‘Closer.’ “He wanted to be left alone.” But don’t mistake Jack for Greta Garbo: He ultimately doesn’t want to be alone. “I would love that one last romance,” he says. “But I’m not very realistic about it happening. What I can’t deny is my yearning.”
Or his fear. Says a source closer to Jack, “He’s afraid of dying alone in that house,” a Mulholland Drive mansion that his children have been hoping he’ll sell. “They’ve been encouraging him to downsize and move into a more manageable place in Beverly Hills,” adds the source. “But he loves his old place in the Hollywood Hills.”
Jack knows he may be fighting a losing battle with his solitary fate. “I’m definitely still wild at heart, but I’ve struck biogravity,” he says. “I can’t hit on women in public anymore. I didn’t decide this; it just doesn’t feel right at my age.” It’s the end of an epic era of womanizing for the famously hard-partying lothario. “If you dated Jack, you knew it would be an exciting experience filled with passion and fun,” says a friend. “But you also knew it would be short-lived.”
Well, not always, Jack was married once, to Sandra Knight. “We had a very beautiful, sweet marriage,” Sandra exclusively tells ‘Closer’ of their 1962 to ’68 bond.
