Movie veteran Jack Nicholson is reportedly being treated in a Los Angeles hospital for a mystery illness. The About Schmidt star "checked into an LA-area hospital for an infection" on Monday, a source tells PageSix.com. The nature of the 69-year-old's illness is unknown. His agent Sandy Bresler tells the website, "I do not comment on Jack's personal life." Nicholson's new movie The Departed, directed by Martin Scorsese, is due for release later this year. He is due to begin work on his next film, The Bucket List, next month.

Paramount wins 'After Hailey' war

4 May 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Paramount Pictures has acquired Jonathan Tropper's unpublished novel After Hailey. Sources said the tome sparked a heated bidding war that involved four studios and pegged the sale at $350,000 against $1 million-plus. The story centers on a 29-year-old man who finds himself widowed and living in the suburbs with a teenage stepson who hates him. Hailey, which will be published by Bantam Books in the spring, is described as in the same vein as About Schmidt. Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn are producing through their Paramount-based shingle. Paramount's Alli Shearmur will shepherd for the studio. Tropper, whose novel Everything Changes is set up at Columbia Pictures, also has the novel Bush Falls in development at Warner Bros. Pictures. He is repped by Writers House and Brillstein-Grey. »
