Vince Vaughn to star in Starbuck

May 9th, 2012

Vince Vaughn is in talks to star in a remake of 'Starbuck'.

The 42-year-old actor is in negotiations to head the cast in DreamWorks' forthcoming version of the French-Canadian film - which was released last July - with filming scheduled to start shooting later this year.

Vince would play a middle-aged man who discovers he has fathered 533 children through sperm donation. After many of his offspring express a desire to meet their father, who was codenamed Starbuck, he must decide whether to give up his anonymity and own up to his identity.

Ken Scott, who made the original 'Starbuck', will write and direct the comedy, while Andre Rouleau will produce and Scott Mednick executive produce.

Vince can next be seen in two comedies, the alien invasion tale 'The Watch' and gambling movie 'Lay the Favorite'.

His next project will see him collaborate with 'Wedding Crashers' co-star Owen Wilson in the Shawn Levy-directed 'Interns'. He is also developing a big screen version of 'The Rockford Files' through his Wild West Picture Show Productions company.
