Netflix has a new movie in the works with Chevy Chase set to star. Variety reports that Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Lewis Black, Andie MacDowell, Kate Micucci, and Chris Parnell have all joined the cast of The Last Laugh, an upcoming Netflix original movie. Here’s the logline for the movie, which is written and directed by Greg Pritikin:
The story centers on a talent manager and widower reuniting with a former client, who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family. Once on tour at classic stand-up venues across the U.S., the comedian gets a last taste of the life he could have had with a rollercoaster ride of two men rekindling friendships, careers, and ideas of the past.
According to Variety’s report, Dreyfuss will play the comedian, and Chase will play the talent manager. Production on The Last Laugh began this week in New Orleans.
