De Niro & Russell Re-Team On Rockefeller Film

De Niro Russell Re Team On Rockefeller Film

Filmmaker David O. Russell, hot on the heels of the news he’s re-teaming with Christian Bale, is also reuniting with another of his regulars.

Robert De Niro, who worked with Russell on “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Joy,” are coming together for a new film focused on one of the most famous businessmen in American history – late 19th-century self-made billionaire John D. Rockefeller.

Daily Mail broke the news, indicating “Bombshell” scribe Charles Randolph is penning the script for the film which is a while off and separate from the Bale project which will be shot this Spring.

De Niro is readying to shoot Martin Scorsese’s next film “Killers of the Flower Moon” and is expected to shoot at least one or two more other films before getting to work on the Rockefeller feature.
