Washington, Oct 29 (ANI): Actor Vince Vaughn has been roped in to star in Universal Pictures next venture titled Sunny and 68.
The film will be directed by Gavin O”Connor of the Frontline fame.
The plot of the film revolves around Vaughn, who plays a superstar on the poker circuit whose alcoholism and recklessness cause him to flame out on national television.
Wiped out and owing 500,000 pounds to bookies, he heads home to upstate New York for the first time in 20 years, looking to take back cash he”d been sending his mother.
Instead, he finds his mother dying of cancer and raising a 5-year-old girl who is actually his daughter. Mom has been positioning his former high school girlfriend to become the girl’’s eventual caretaker.
“It’’s a story of how three generations of women teach this character to become a man,” Variety quoted O”Connor, as saying.
The title comes from the character’’s mother, who, despite the cold weather, insists that “it’’s sunny and 68.” (ANI)
