Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the adventure drama, The Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman.

Rob Reiner is directing the film; Variety says Nicholson and Freeman will play two men who break out of a ward for terminal cancer patients and embark on a road trip, knocking items off a list of things they want to do before kicking the bucket.

Justin Zackham wrote the script; look for a late October production start for The Bucket List.
