Don Scardino, who recently directed The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, is now in talks to helm a remake of the 1979 caper comedy, Going in Style. The original film starred the comedic trio of George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as three elderly friends who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. They decide to organize a bank robbery for kicks and carry it out with their signature style. Scardino would direct the remake from a Ted Melfi script with Tony Bill, a producer on the original film, returning to executive produce.
