Morgan Freeman will take care of some unfinished business in “Cold Warriors.” The 78-year-old is attached to star in the Raja Gosnell-directed spy action-comedy, Deadline reports.

Too long in the tooth to get back into the field, Morgan’s retired CIA agent character recruits his video game programmer stepson to help him complete a Cold War mission in the forthcoming movie. Of course, the old dog will learn some new tricks from the tech whiz and the arsenal of gadgets that now exist in the iPhone era.

Deadline describes the storyline as “‘Taken’ meets ‘Get Smart.'”

The role of the stepson has not yet been cast and production has not started.

There’s no shortage of other work in the pipeline for the Oscar winner. Freeman is attached to four other films next year, including “Down to a Sunless Sea,” “Ben-Hur,” “London Has Fallen” and “Going in Style.”
