DE NIRO AND PFEIFFER LIKELY TO REUNITE FOR FESTIVE ROM-COM
Veteran actors Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer who starred together in Stardust are in talks to join two time Oscar winner Hillary Swank in a romantic comedy entitled New Year’s Eve. The film will be directed by Garry Marshall and will interwine various stories over the festive period in a multi-narrative format made famous by films such as Short Cuts, Happiness and Magnolia.
De Niro has starred in so many forgettable films over the past decade that it is hard to take any of his projects seriously anymore but let’s hope that he is actually committed to this film if he does decide to sign up for the role. Filming is scheduled to shoot next month and is destined for a December 2011 release.
