Morgan Freeman is set to star in 'Last Vegas'.

Morgan Freeman is set to star in 'Last Vegas'.

The Oscar-winning actor is in negotiations to join Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro in the Jon Turtletaub-directed comedy.

The film tells the story of four ageing men - Freeman, Douglas, De Niro and one other - who reunite in Vegas for Douglas' alter ego's bachelor party.

However, the night leads to tension after it emerges two of the men loved the same woman when they were teenagers.

'Crazy, Stupid, Love' writer Dan Fogelman will pen the script for the movie, which Dustin Hoffman and Christopher Walken have previously been linked to.

Douglas was previously linked with the movie three years ago, but he was diagnosed with cancer in August 2010 and he took time out from acting to battle the disease.

It will be his first movie since successfully fighting cancer.

Douglas' last film appearance saw him star in Steven Soderbergh's action movie 'Haywire', which was shot in early 2010 and released earlier this year.
