Robert De Niro is in negotiations to star in the Tim Hill-directed “The War With Grandpa” for Dimension Films.
The story revolves around a young man who loves his grandfather, but also loves his bedroom. When his grandpa’s wife dies, he moves in.
The young man engages in a series of pranks meant to drive him out, but the old man is pretty resourceful in returning the favor.
Matt Ember, Tom Astle, Lisa Addario and Joey Syracuse have all worked on the script. Phillip Glasser, Marvin Peart and Rose Morris Peart are producing.
