Rlichard Dreyfuss and Nick Nolte will play the leads originally talked about for Jack Nicholson and Bill Murray in “Jerry Saved from Drowning,” a remake of a French film classic.
Dreyfuss will play a bum saved from drowning by Nolte, a Beverly Hills businessman who takes the bum into his household, then the bum takes over. Don’t they always?
Bette Midler has been set for the female lead, that of Nolte’s wife. It’s all too divine.
