Jack Nicholson May Lack The Drive But Not Retired

In an article from Vanity Fair back in September 2013, Nicholson declared that he doesn't really consider himself as retired, however, the famous actor did declare that he just doesn't have that much drive to be out there anymore as compared to when he was younger.

The 79-year-old actor has ended years of speculations and rumors surrounding his withdrawal from acting by taking part in the German-Austrian comedy-drama "Toni Erdmann" alongside "Blockbuster's" star Kristen Wiig.

The Oscar-Nominated foreign film, which is originally played by Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller revolves around the story of a father who has a fondness in playing mushy pranks in the hopes of loosening up his dearest daughter. It also tackles issues such as globalism and female liberation.

Adam McKay, actor/producer Will Ferrell, and Jessica Elbaum will produce the new film through Gloria Sanchez Productions. And original producers Jonas Dornbach and Janine Jackowski alongside Maren Ade will be the executive producers.

Jack Nicholson's co-star, Kristen Wiig (Iren, Winfried's daughter), is also set for frenzied months as she is to star in Alexander Payne's Downsizing, with famous hunk Matt Damon.
