The first image from the “The Hangover with old guys” comedy Last Vegas has been released on the heels of the official start of production. The story centers on four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. Jon Turtletaub (National Treasure) directs the rather impressive cast that includes Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline, and Morgan Freeman. Filming has now begun in Las Vegas (though this first image is horribly photoshopped) and will continue in Atlanta. The cast will be doing location shooting in Vegas on the strip and at Aria Resort & Casino.
