Kristen Wiig to Star in ‘Toni Erdmann’ Remake

Posted on February 14, 2017 and filed under Toni Erdmann Remake

Jack Nicholson, who hasn’t appeared in a feature film since 2010, will star opposite Kristen Wiig in the English-language remake of Toni Erdmann. Sources tell Variety Paramount Pictures has acquired remake rights to the Oscar-nominated film with Nicholson and Wiig attached to star.

Adam McKay, who recently directed The Big Short for the studio, will produce along with Wiig, Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum of Gloria Sanchez Productions. Maren Ade, writer and director of the original Toni Erdmann, will exec produce the remake along with producers Jonas Dornbach and Janine Jackowski. Paramount is still looking to attach a director and writer.

The original Toni Erdmann, starring Sandra Huller and Peter Simonischek, followed a practical joking father who tries to reconnect with his hard working daughter by creating an outrageous alter ego and posing as her CEO’s life coach. The German pic is nominated for best foreign feature at the Academy Awards on Feb. 26 and was also nominated for Best Foreign film at the Golden Globes in January.
