De Niro to star in Grudge Match?

Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro are rumoured to be going head to head in Tim Kelleher's Grudge Match.

Production Weekly reported on its Twitter account: "La Motta vs Balboa - Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro rumoured to get back in the ring for Tim Kelleher's Grudge Match at Warner Bros."

The film is about two former boxers, Billy 'The Kid' McGuigan and Henry 'Razor' Sharp, who go into the ring for a final round against one another and will be made in a similar tone to Clint Eastwood's Space Cowboys, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If the rumours are to believed, it would be the second time the Hollywood legends have teamed up, after having starred together in James Mangold's Copland back in 1997.
