- GRUDGE MATCH
|Sly Stalllone & Robert DeNiro|
Two boxing heavyweights will soon collide as the Italian Stallion, Mr. Expendable himself, Sylvester “Rocky” Stallone and the Greatest of All Time, the Godfather, the Taxi Driver, the Raging Bull, Robert De Niro sign on for the Grudge Match. Warener Bro’s has officially signed on to the film with Peter Seagal directing.
The film follows two retired fighters who put on the gloves for one last bout. With the most recent draft turned in by Doug Ellin (Entourage), the studio has given this one the go-ahead.
Few details are available as to the film’s plot, but looking at the pedigree of Segal and Ellin, its bound to be something of a sports comedy.
As proof to this Kevin Hart (The 40 Year Old Virgin) has signed on as the titular match’s fight promoter who gets both brawlers back in the ring.
