Uptown Saturday Night remake might star Will Smith and Denzel Washington

Warner Bros want Will Smith and Denzel Washington to star in their upcoming remake of Uptown Saturday Night, Deadline reports.

Adam McKay is in negotiations to direct.

The 1974 original featured Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier as two buddies who are held up at an illegal nightclub, and accidentally surrender a winning lottery ticket.

McKay would direct the flick after he completes the newly announced Anchorman sequel.

Discuss: Any fans of the original out there?
