Al Pacino and Robert De Niro are joining forces for the first time since they squared off against each other in the highly acclaimed Heat. This time around in Righteous Kill (how cool of a title is that?), the two actors will be on the same side of the law and hunting a serial killer. Behind the helm is Jon Avnet, who hasn’t done much recently except for the defunct but critically acclaimed “Boomtown”. Older films include Fried Green Tomatoes and The War.
Four new images are available in our Righteous Kill image gallery.
Could this be the big break the two actors, especially De Niro, need? Some criticize Pacino for shouting his way through his performances, though he certainly still has fan appeal and chooses films adequately well. De Niro, however, has not done anything remarkable in what seems like a decade. Fans want to see these actors in serious films, and seeing them together in a serious film, a serial killer flick, no less, should appease them somewhat. I’m excited.
