Jerry Lewis to Lead Indie Drama MAX ROSE

Star return to cinema after a 13 year absence.

86-year-old Jerry Lewis is set to make his big screen comeback with ‘Max Rose,’ an indie feature that will mark the directorial debut of writer/producer Daniel Noah.

Per Deadline, “the film is a drama about a jazz pianist who has recently lost his wife of over five decades. A discovery made days before her death causes Max to believe his marriage was a lie. He embarks on an exploration of his own past that brings him face to face with a menagerie of characters from a bygone era.”

Claire Bloom, Kevin Pollak, Kerry Bishe and Mort Sahl are attached for supporting roles.

The film, which begins shooting this week in Los Angeles, will mark Lewis’ first film role since Peter Chelsom 1995 comedy-drama ‘Funny Bones.’
