The 1974 comedy “Uptown Saturday Night about two buddies, played by Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby, who sneak out of their homes to visit an illegal gambling joint and wind up in all sorts of trouble may be hitting the big screen again, this time with two of today’s blockbuster stars.

Will Smith and Denzel Washington are rumored to be teaming up for a sequel of the hilarious blaxploitation-era film, according to Vulture.

Reportedly, Smith has held the rights to the film for over nine years. Washington’s name as a possible co-star in the movie has been kicked around since 2009.

It does appear that the remake has been green-lighted because director Adam McKay has reportedly been approached and the movie’s backers are waiting until he completes his shoot on the film “Anchorman 2.”

Smith has been seen in a comedic light via his old TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”  If “Uptown Saturday Night” does make it to the big screen, will audiences be receptive to Denzel The Funny Man? Although the Academy Award-winning actor has made his Hollywood name playing more serious roles, he did however, have the lead in the 1981 comedy “Carbon Copy,” but no more comedic roles followed.

If the two Hollywood megastars decide to combine their acting superpowers for the remake, they will truly be a Hollywood force to be reckoned with!
