Christopher Walken and Alessandro Nivola have signed on to star in Nigel Cole’s (Calendar Girls, Saving Grace, A Lot Like Love) road-trip caper film Five Dollars a Day. The film actually has an interesting premise: Walken will play a conman proud of living like a king on $5 a day who reunited with his son Nivola, who had been jailed for one of his father’s crimes.
Neal and Tippi Dobrofsky penned the script, which doesn’t give us much hope considering their last couple of films were pretty bad (The Donor, Flinch). But I can watch almost any movie when Walken is on the screen. Prinicpal photography will begin in New Mexico and Atlantic City in mid-September. [via: Variety]
