While Maren Ade's Toni Erdmann didn't live up to its initial hype for me, I came to appreciate the film's thoughtful, funny, and rather sad exploration of child/parent relationships in adulthood. The movie made my top 15 films of 2016 list, and I'll probably watch Toni Erdmann again in the coming months for a critical reassessment.
Paramount is moving forward with an American remake of Toni Erdmann, and they've cast the film's leads. Jack Nicholson has returned from retirement to star in the movie alongside Kristen Wiig. This is Nicholson's first big screen role since 2010's How Do You Know.
As of this writing there is no writer or director attached to the project. Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Wiig will serve as producers on the film.
