With Bill Murray’s film Hyde Park on the Hudson debuting later this year, the comedian has reportedly turned his attention to the 2011 Black List script, St. Vincent De Van Nuys.  The Ted Melfi script, which garnered as many votes as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, centers on a 12-year-old boy whose parents are going through a divorce.  He then forms an unlikely friendship with the retiree next door (Murray), a war veteran who goes from leading a life of drinking, gambling and prostitutes to one of an unlikely mentorship.  Jack Nicholson had previously been reported as potentially attached to the project.  Now, Variety reports that Murray is currently in negotiations with Twentieth Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment.
