Robert Pattinson and Robert De Niro have signed up to perform in an art house film directed by Olivier Assayas. The movie is about an article called “Boosting the Big Tuna”, the real story of a gang who accidentally rob the store of Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo.
Although we have seen Robert Pattinson acting in big franchises such as Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga, this will be a great turn of events since the actor is looking for some interesting movies to act in.
In addition, De Niro will be an amazing co-worker for Pattinson.
The director of the movie Olivier Assayas is better known for his work in Cold Water, his first movie that debuted atCannes International Film Festival in 1994.
Other important titles that he has directed are:
- Late August,
- Early September,
- and Something In The Air,
all of them art house films. For that reason, we cannot expect that this new movie will be a commercial film.
The title of this new movie will be Idol’s Eye and there is no information about the plot. However, it is likely that Robert De Niro will play Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo, while Pattinson will have the gangster role.
