  Bob and Ed Together Again

I was a huge fan of The Score, though apparently no one else was.  So when I heard that Robert De Niro and Edward Norton were teaming up together again, I was pretty stoaked.

They’re getting back together for a film called Stone.

The story centers on a corrections officer (De Niro) who is seduced by the wife of a convicted arsonist (Norton) up for parole.

If that’s not reason enough to see it, I don’t know what is.




  De Niro And Scorsese Make Mobster Flick
Posted by: Mike on Oct 2nd, 2008 1 Comment »

It was reported yesterday, via various sources, that Martin Scorses and Robert De Niro are going to be working together on a movie called I Heard You Paint Houses, which is an adaptation of the book of the same name, written by Charles Brandt.

“I heard you paint houses” was/is mobster slang for killing people, and the splatter of blood that flew across walls and ceilings in the victims’ homes.

De Niro will play Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, who was reportedly involved in as many as 25 mob assassinations. Many believe he is the man responsible for killing Jimmy Hoffa.

Part of me is excited, but the other half says “that last De Niro movie got reviewed pretty badly.”  What do you think? Does this sound like something you’d be interested in?  Voice your opinion in the comments.




  Brad Pitt Beats Up De Niro And Pacino

In a stunning weekend take, the Coen brothers bring in their all time highest grossing opening weekend, beating up on De Niro and Pacino with a take of $19.4 million for Burn After Reading.

Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys came in second with $18 million. I, for one, totally don’t get that whole “only black people allowed” movie mentality.  What’s Tyler Perry got against white people?

De Niro and Pacino came in with $16.5 million for Righteous Kill, not a bad take, but certainly not the #1 spot that was expected.

Is the world ending? Or are Brad Pitt and George Clooney the new De Niro and Pacino?
