Michael Douglas making movie comeback

20 April 2012, 07:07

Los Angeles - Michael Douglas is returning to the big screen after fighting off throat cancer.

The 67-year-old actor - who is married to 42-year-old actress Catherine Zeta-Jones - is set to star in ensemble comedy Las Vegas, which will see him play an ageing ladies man who is in denial about growing old, but he settles down and ties the knot with a woman half his age.

Stag night

Michael was previously linked with the movie three years ago, but he was diagnosed with cancer in August 2010 and he took time out from acting to battle the disease.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crazy, Stupid, Love writer Dan Fogelman will pen the script for the movie - which Dustin Hoffman and Christopher Walken have both been linked to - and John Turteltaub will direct the project.

The film tells the story of Michael's alter-ego inviting his three childhood best friends to party with him on his Las Vegas stag night, which leads to tension after it emerges two of the men loved the same woman when they were teenagers.

Michael's last movie appearance saw him star in Steven Soderbergh's action movie Haywire, which was shot in early 2010 and released earlier this year.
