Vince Vaughn will star in Dreamwork’s remake of Starbuck, a French-Canadian comedy which scored big with audiences at MIFF 2012, about a man whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has fathered 533 children through sperm donation. When a few hundred of the children express an irrepressible need to meet their father, he must decide whether to step up and reveal his identity.  Ken Scott, who wrote and directed the original, is writing the script for the English-language studio adaptation and will direct. ‘Avengers’actress Cobie Smulders, (How I Met Your Mother), is also in negotiations to join the cast.
