This can’t be as bad as “Parental Guidance” right? Billy Crystal has signed on to star in “Winter’s Discontent”, which according to Firstshowing.net: When Herb Winter’s wife of fifty years dies, the faithful but sexually frustrated widower moves into a retirement community to start living the swinging single life.

Originally “Borat” director Larry Charles was attached, but now “Death at a Funeral” director (the original one) Frank Oz is helming the film. Hopefully this turns out to be more in the vein of “When Harry Met Sally” and “City Slickers” than “Parental Guidance”.
