Jack is back.

That’s the talk of Hollywood following industry reports that 79-year-old screen legend Jack Nicholson will be returning to the big screen for the first time since 2010.

Nicholson is attached to star with Kristen Wiig in the English-language remake of the Oscar-nominated German comedy Toni Erdmann, according to a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it.

Industry publication Variety broke the news of Nicholson’s return Tuesday. The three-time Oscar winner last appeared in the little-seen 2010 James L. Brooks comedy How Do You Know. The star last made a Nicholson-like splash onscreen alongside Morgan Freeman in director Rob Reiner’s 2007 hit The Bucket List.

The source tells USA TODAY that Nicholson was a “huge fan of the original” Toni Erdmann and approached Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey. The studio is in the process of finding a director and screenwriter for the project, with no start date or release date set.

Toni Erdmann, a 2016 Cannes International Film Festival standout, is up for best foreign language film at the Feb. 26 Academy Awards. The film stars Peter Simonischek as a prank-pulling father who tries to reconnect with his corporate workaholic daughter (Sandra Hüller) by posing as a life coach for her company’s CEO.

In an earlier interview with USA TODAY, Toni Erdmann director Maren Ade declined to weigh in on which stars she thought could play the roles if there were an American remake.

“I cannot participate in that,” Ade said. “That’s like introducing someone that’s going to be my new father or my new husband. … We’ll see what happens.”
