Al Pacino has signed up for 'Stand Up Guys'.

The 71-year-old star has joined the cast of the action comedy - which was previously titled 'Old Timers' - along with Alan Arkin and Christopher Walken.

The movie follows two ageing criminals the night before one of them has to kill his friend. They decide to have one last night of debauchery, with their evening spent visiting a brothel, chasing cars and evading a police chase, while also taking the time to reflect on their lives.

Noah Haidie has written The Script, with Fisher Stevens directing the film, which is scheduled to begin shooting in Los Angeles in April.

Al - who was last seen in 'Jack and Jill' - will next appear in 'Wilde Salome' and 'The Son Of No One', while Alan has recently completed work on Ben Affleck's thriller 'Argo' and Christopher is currently awaiting the release of 'Dark Horse'.

Alan has previously appeared in movies with both of his 'Stand up Guys' co-stars.

He and Al were in 'Gigli', though did not share any scenes while he appeared opposite Christopher in 2001's 'America's Sweethearts'.
