Tommy Lee Jones Morgan Freeman

Tommy Lee Jones and Morgan Freeman to star in Villa Capri. The two Academy Award-winning actors will headline the planned action comedy from Academy Award-nominee Ron Shelton.

Known for his work on such comedic productions as White Men Can’t Jump and Bull Durham, Shelton is now set to direct Jones and Freeman in his newest movie:

Villa Capri is a two-hander action comedy, in the vein of Midnight Run about an ex-FBI agent (Jones) and an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program (Freeman) having to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit.

Freeman’s recent credits include Now You See Me 2, London Has Fallen and Lucy, and can next be seen in the reimagining of the classic Ben-Hur. Freeman has been a part of timeless cinematic moments for his roles in The Shawshank Redemption, Se7en and Million Dollar Baby, the latter of which earned him an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. Freeman has also been nominated for four additional Academy Awards and five Golden Globes, winning one for his role in Driving Miss Daisy.

Jones will be in the upcoming film Jason Bourne starring Matt Damon and Alicia Vikander. He won an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for The Fugitive, and was nominated for Academy Awards for his roles in JFK and In the Valley of Elah.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
