He will hope to star in the film as well. Stephen is writing a script under the umbrella of Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison Productions, which he hopes will be a starring vehicle for himself and also one of his friends Jack Nicholson.
“I like to make movies about characters. I like smaller films, that’s what I love to do,” Dorff revealed. “I love acting, number one, but I think now I’ll get more into producing and make some more films, à la “Felon” [a prison film which Dorff executive produced and starred in], maybe even a little bigger. I have a comedy idea that I came up with that I’m doing with Adam Sandler’s company that I want to do with Jack Nicholson, who’s still a good friend of mine.”
Dorff and Nicholson worked together in Bob Rafelson’s 1996 noir thriller Blood and Wine alongside Michael Caine, Jennifer Lopez and Judy Davis. Dorff has still not spoken to Jack Nicholson about the project that should happen soon.
This is what he has to say about his upcoming project.
“It’s a very funny comedy idea for me and him set in the South of France. We’re not in script form yet but I wrote the treatment and [the idea has] already [been] bought it so as soon as I get a break from working, I’ll turn that into a script and I’ll go and tell Jack,” Dorff noted, before apparently impressing the reporter with an impersonation of Nicholson replying “Dorff, come on, let’s do it.”
“And I’ll get Sony to give him his $15m and then we’ll go and make the movie – because he likes money. Just the way I like money too.” He’s joking but we doubt he’s lying. And it’s not just the life of luxury he could get used to, adding that “after working with Sofia, I’m having a hard time finding anything that is remotely as good. Working with Sofia was kind of like the kiss of death. I told Sofia, ‘I hope we get to do another one because it’s very hard to find another one now after I’ve worked with you because it was such an amazing experience.’”
Dorff is working with Tarsem Singh and that will be another beautiful experience for the director. Immortals will be expected to hit theaters on November 11 th next year. Somewhere will be out by the end of next month.
