Robert De Niro and Martin Scrsese looking to team up again
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
We’ve been hearing this rumor for quite some time and ten years ago, the prospect of having Robert De Niro starring in another mob movie directed by Martin Scorsese would have been the stuff dreams are made of. But even though I’m still excited at the prospect, it just doesn’t have the “oomph” that it would have had several years ago. De Niro hasn’t been doing great movies lately and he’s lost some of that appeal that he used to have. Of course, having Scorsese direct should definitely help matters.
We’re pretty far away from seeing this come to reality. Scorsese mentioned this in passing during the premiere of SHUTTER ISLAND. But the fact that the two of them are seriously working on a project is good news. Now if they could only get Al Pacino involved somehow; I would hate to have RIGHTEOUS KILL be the last time they’re onscreen together.
