Veteran actors Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones are teaming up for action comedy “Villa Capri”.
“Bull Durham” helmer Ron Shelton will direct the project from his own script, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The film will mark Shelton’s return to the big-screen, who has not written nor directed a feature since 2003’s “Hollywood Homicide.”
Bill Gerber and Steve Richards are producing with Richards’ banner Endurance Media financing along with eOne.
The film is a two-hander action comedy and revolves around an ex-FBI agent and an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program having to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit.
