It seems that, Robert De Niro, one of the greatest actors of all time, has just signed up to star alongside 50 Cent again.
According to Deadline De Niro who starred in films like Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, will star in Freelancers, the first film since Righteous Kill that will see him performing alongside 50 Cent.
Forest Whitaker is also in talks to join the cast. Directed by Jessy Terrero, 50 Cent plays a young man who signs up for the NYPD after his father, a former cop, was shot and killed. After graduating, he begins working with his father’s former partner (De Niro) and becomes part of a rogue task force.
I was hoping to see De Niro again, but definitely not next to 50 Cent. I was hoping a possible De Niro’s reunion with Scorsese on The Irishman, but now it seems like a dream. Too bad.
