Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone will reunite for Warner Bros. Grudge Match. The two will also be joined by comedian Kevin Hart, who will play the fight promoter of two retired fighters.
Grudge Match will be directed by Peter Segal (50 First Dates, Get Smart) and written by Entourage creator Doug Ellin. The film is being produced at Warner Bros. by Billy Gerber (Gran Toniro), Mark Steven Johnson (Grumpier Old Men) and Michael Ewing (The Longest Yard, Tommy Boy).
The film follows two retired brawlers who return to the ring to sort it out one last time. Both De Niro and Stallone are famous for their boxing roles, and it’ll be exciting to see the Raging Bull go against Rocky Balboa. But this means De Niro needs to tone up because Stallone, 66, still hasn’t lost his muscular figure.
Hart is a good casting choice for the supporting role. He’s a funny guy and we’re sure he’ll provide some comedic relief in any type of tense situation.
Are you excited about this? It’ll be Rocky Balboa Vs. Jake LaMotta. Stay tuned for the release date ’cause this is a fight you won’t want to miss.
