First Look: 'Last Vegas' Hits the Desert Old School

As the comedy begins production in Nevada, CBS Films has unveiled a first look at Last Vegas, showing off the impressive core cast of Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline.

The title Last Vegas pretty cleanly conveys the setting and gives a good idea of the premise, but just to be absolutely clear, this first look image places the quartet in front of the famous, "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign modified to include the movie's title.  A story that to some extent channels The Hangover but with older characters and almost certainly less raunch, Last Vegas finds these four longtime friends in America's tawdry playground to throw a bachelor party for Douglas's character, a committed playboy who is finally getting hitched.  Hilarity naturally ensues.  Presumably without the involvement of roofies.

Jon Turtletaub, the director behind the National Treasure movies, as well as Cool Runnings, Three Ninjas, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice, handles helming duties on this ensemble comedy.  The screenplay is credited to Adam Brooks and Dan Fogelman.  Brooks wrote and directed 2008's Definitely, Maybe, while Fogelman wrote Crazy, Stupid, Love and contributed to animated films like Cars and Tangled.

The image below debuted on the official Last Vegas Facebook:

Last Vegas arrives in theaters just before next Christmas, on December 20, 2013.  The image was accompanied by a press release enthusiastically hyping the cast.  Here it is:

LAS VEGAS – November 5, 2012 – Save the date because film legends Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline will be coming to a theater near you next Holiday Season straight from fabulous LAST VEGAS! The film, which will be released on December 20th, 2013, marks the first time ever these four Hollywood icons, who have garnered a total of six Oscar® wins and 14 nominations and accumulated over an estimated $16.6 billion at the worldwide box office, will appear together on the big screen.
