The Lucius Fox of 'The Dark Knight' is attached to star in the Warner Bros. comedy with a possibility of a reunion with 'The Bucket List' co-star, Jack Nicholson.

Following the success of "The Bucket List" in 2007, Academy Award recipient Morgan Freeman is ready to plunge himself into another comedy movie for Warner Bros. Pictures. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 72-year-old is attached to star in an untitled comedy spec by Josh Cagan and Greg Coolidge which working title is "Dirty Old Men".

Set to serve as the project's executive producer, Freeman will take on the role of the best man and wingman of an aging playboy and does everything he can to break up the playboy from the love of his life. THR further pointed out the likelihood of him re-teaming with "Bucket" co-star Jack Nicholson, though noting that the latter is yet to be attached.

"Dirty Old Men" is said to be developed in the vein of "Wedding Crashers" and "The 40 Year-Old Virgin". Peter Segal eyes to direct with Kevin McCormick and Jesse Ehrman overseeing for the studio. Cagan and Coolidge cooked up the "Dirty" idea before presenting it to Revelations. The team then brought it to Warners, for which Segal developed "Get Smart".

Morgan Freeman had been nominated for Oscars three times before finally taking home the golden man statuette for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Eddie "Scrap Iron" Dupris in "Million Dollar Baby". He is also known for his role as Lucius Fox in the last two installments of Batman movies, "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight". He will next be seen in "Invictus", starring as Nelson Mandela.
