Whoever had the idea of putting Sylvester ‘Rocky’ Stallone and Robert ‘Raging Bull’ De Niro in a boxing movie together was a pretty smart cookie. The film, Grudge Match, is now shooting, and we’ve got our first look via a set photo release by @W_Whitehill on Twitter, featuring De Niro, Stallone and basketball star Robin Lopez.
The film is about two retired boxers (De Niro and Stallone) who step back into the ring to settle an old score. Jon Bernthal will play De Niro’s estranged son, who feels conflicted about training his father. Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger, and Alan Arkin have also signed on to star.
Peter Segal is directing, with a release planned for later this year.
