Al Pacino will replace his “Heat” and “Righteous Kill” co-star Robert De Niro on Dito Montiel’s police thriller “Son of No One” for Nu Image/Millennium Films says Reuters.
The story follows a young cop assigned to the working class neighborhood where he grew up. He soon finds an old secret has begun to resurface and threatens to destroy his family.
Montiel (“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,” “Fighting”) penned the project which also stars Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta and Terrence Howard. Channing Tatum is not yet signed but is expected to play the young cop, re-teaming with Montiel for a third time.
