Winfried rarely sees Ines since she left for a high-powered corporate job. So when he drops by to visit, the two quickly find themselves at odds as his quirky antics clash with her slick lifestyle. Determined to be part of her world, Winfried reappears as alter ego “Toni Erdmann,” an outrageous life coach who turns his daughter’s career plans upside-down. In the course of all the madness, the two discover that maybe they have more in common than they imagined.

Jack Nicholson is going to be Tony Erdmann in a remake.

Jack is back! But why as Tony Erdmann, from the German's film? They don't have any good scripts for Jack in Hollywood?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to see that original film, with subtitles. Thx Mike.

It's a tough life for actors and film directors in Hollywood...making $20 millions plus per film. ...The ones in demand.
And it's tough too for films making one and $2 billions plus @ the box office.
It's a tough life for script writers lacking imagination.
It's much easier to do remakes, or follow the cartoons.

Brief, it's a tough life to be in the film industry, and to create from original imagination with a good entertaining message.
@ the end it all comes down to MONEY. Whatever sells, even if it's fake, or a remake.

I'm with you Mike.
