Michael Douglas And Son Cameron Will Appear In New Drama Together


Michael Douglas and his son Cameron Douglas will appear in a new family drama, almost 20 years after they first worked together. They previously starred in the 2003 film It Runs in the Family, which also starred Michael’s father, the late Kirk Douglas.

The real-life father and son are going to play father and son in the new drama Blood Knot, based on the 2015 novel called Looking Through Water. It reportedly “follows a father who invites his estranged son to visit him in Puerto Rico to compete in a father-son fishing competition to try and mend their broken relationship.”

Cameron wrote a book about his experiences in hopes of inspiring others to change their lives. Michael said about his son, “I’m very proud of [Cameron], not only for the book but for the way he conducts his life. He’s talking the talk and walking the walk.”
