'Wall Street' thesp boarding bachelor party pic

After conquering Wall Street, Michael Douglas is setting his sights on another high-rolling locale, as he’s in negotiations to topline CBS Films and Mandate Pictures’ Sin City comedy “Last Vegas.”

Jon Turtletaub (“National Treasure”) is directing the pic, which would find Douglas playing a man who, before marrying a woman half his age, invites his three childhood best friends on a wild bachelor party weekend in Las Vegas, where old tensions crop up between him and one of the trio over the woman they both loved as teenagers.

Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”) wrote the original screenplay, with more recent drafts by Adam Brooks and Alan Yang.

Laurence Mark and Amy Baer are producing the laffer, while Mandate’s Nathan Kahane will exec produce.

Maria Faillace and Alex Ginno will oversee the project for CBS Films and Nicole Brown will oversee on behalf of Mandate.

“Last Vegas” is skedded to shoot in September, once Douglas wraps Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace pic “Behind the Candelabra” for HBO.

A two-time Oscar winner, Douglas was last seen in Soderbergh’s action pic “Haywire,” as well as Oliver Stone’s sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” He’s repped by WME.
