Hoffman, Caine, Freeman Get Some “Style”

Dustin Hoffman is in talks to join Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine in the remake of the 1979 caper comedy “Going in Style” at New Line.

As reported yesterday, Zach Braff is being to potentially direct the project. Braff would take over from the previously attached Ted Melfi who also penned the script, however negotiations with Braff are currently not in progress.

The original 1979 Martin Brest-directed film followed George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as a trio of elderly men who, out of boredom, decide to pull off a bank robbery.

Filming aims to begin in the spring. Donald De Line is producing.
