De Niro & Pacino Make The Kill

This time it’s no April Fools joke kids.

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino will star together for the first time since “Heat” in Millennium Films and Emmett/Furla Films $60 milllion crime thriller “Righteous Kill” reports Teletext.

Jon Avnet (“Entrapment”) directs and Russell Gewirtz (“Inside Man”) penned the story, which pairs the stars as detectives on the trail of a serial killer.

“This was one of the hardest deals we’ve done,” producer Randell Emmett said. “When we realised we had a chance to get them together we leapt at it.”

The two-month shoot begins August 6th in Connecticut with follow-up information in New York City.
