Freeman, Bening Enter A “Third Act”

Rob Reiner has signed on to direct “The Third Act” as his next project reports Showbiz 411.

Speaking at an AARP dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Reiner says “I’m working on a film the title of it now is now called The Third Act-it looks like we’ll have Morgan Freeman and Annette Bening in it together.”

He adds that it’s still very early days yet – “I don’t want to tell you more about it because we haven’t even started shooting yet. You’re the only person I’ve told. It hasn’t been announced. I’m directing, producing and doing some rewriting from an original script by a fellow named Guy Thomas.”
