Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro have busted up faces on the set of Grudge Match

Feb. 22, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Is GRUDGE MATCH a good thing for Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro? Putting two actors together who have played iconic boxing roles before is certainly a good idea. Not to mention that these guys are legendary in their own right. However, one must wonder what this has to say about De Niro at this point in his career? Stallone is badass and all, but he's not quite as box office worthy as he once was. Plus, De Niro hasn't been in those quality roles that we are used to, with the recent exception of SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. How well did COP LAND do back in 1997? Anyway, I digress...

A photo of the pair were found on Twitter this evening. Look at them, all beat to hell in the prime of their lives. I hope this works out for the both of them. Stallone is always doing what he does best, and De Niro is in serious need of a turnaround. The actors play retired boxers going against one another. Kevin Hart is playing the fight promoter that puts the whole thing together. Peter Segal (GET SMART) will direct the script from Doug Ellin (GET SMART).

screw the movie

I want this to start a trend of dragging real life boxers out of retirement to beat the crap out of each other. Move over IFC - there's a new kid in town... and he's got an AARP card and a mean left hook.

And the movie ends with....

A). They simultaneously knock each other out
Or

B). They go the whole XX rounds and the judges declare a tie.

There, just saved you $11.00

Can Dniro still fight?

Considering the age of Dniro,this movie sounds funny.is this really a comedy movie? Wud have been interested in watching Rocky vs Lamotta if Dniro was younger.they should have done this movie with Arnold Vs Stallone,that would be the coolest fight.

Is this a comedy???

It is using comedic actors as side characters, directed by a guy who has done mostly comedies and the premise can't be something taken seriously...

Regular Old Guy vs. Roided Out Old Guy

Who are we kidding here? Even with two years of constant, rigorous training, DeNiro is still going to look like a relatively pudgy, wrinkly old man (and there's NOTHING wrong with that!) while Sly is gonna look like Sly. A roided out age-defying freak.

The real and only question we need to ask is... Who would win a real life fight between the 2?

So, from the makers of Get Smart. I didn't see that movie, but can't help but think that should say something about where this one might rank.

Eh, not really interested in this, except it's the team behind Get Smart, which was great.

Just wait for everyone to start calling this rocky 7. but i REALLY hope this is a good film. Both actors are amazing and it would be an absolute shame if the movie flopped.

I like DeNiro a lot and am somewhat of a fan of Stallone in the right role, but this movie doesn't really get me that excited.

Is anyone NOT going to see Stallone as Rocky in this?

While I am actually excited for this movie, I think your right, it'll be hard not to see Stallone as Rocky, hopefully this will turn out good.
