LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Veteran actresses and fellow Oscar winners Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker are teaming up for a road-trip comedy, "Cloudburst."

Dukakis and Fricker will play a couple, together for 30 years, who break out of a nursing home and head to Canada to get married, picking up a young male hitchhiker along the way.

Thom Fitzgerald, who worked with Dukakis on the films "The Event" and "3 Needles," is writing and directing the feature for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.
