Robert De Niro & Rachel Weisz Join Robert Pattinson In Oliver Assayas' 'Idol's Eye'
After notching David Cronenberg, David Michod, Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn under his belt, Robert Pattinson is now gearing up to work on screen opposite a bonafide legend. Haters gonna hate, but anyone with an open mind can't help but be excited by this one.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the axeman, with Ol Parker ("Now Is Good") at the helm of the movie "which chronicles the last nine days of Hendrix's life."

Fading Gigolo
When James Gandolofini suddenly and sadly passed away last year, a project that was unfortunately left in the lurch was HBO's "Criminal Justice." The show had already been through some development hurdles, with the network originally passing on the project, but later coming back on board when it was retooled as a limited series. And then things looked even better when Robert De Niro signed up to replace Gandolfini in the fall, but it looks like there's another casting switcheroo happening.

The Bag Man
The first sign there is something seriously wrong with “The Bag Man” is the poster. In the same size font, we see the names of the film’s three stars: John Cusack, Rebecca Da Costa, and Robert De Niro. Equal billing for Cusack, De Niro, and … Da Costa? Who is Rebecca De Costa? Why is her name given equal status? And for that matter, why does De Niro look like Bernie Madoff playing Robert Evans, or vice versa? And why does Cusack look more like Richard Nixon here than he did playing Nixon in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”? And what to make of the writing underneath the title “The Bag Man”? It reads: “THE CAT’S IN THE BAG,” followed by “INSPIRED BY THE STORY ‘THE CAT’ BY MARIE-LOUISE VON FRANZ”? What the hell is happening here?!

American Hustle Robert De Niro
"De Niro is extremely meticulous when he's really passionate about something and we had endless conversations," director David O. Russell said last fall at a press conference for "American Hustle." "He loved the fact that this man [Victor Tellegio] spoke Arabic—which happens to be one of the true things in the story. Truth is crazier than fiction, but there was a mobster who spoke Arabic... He was really into meticulously constructing this guy. He wanted to do something he'd never done before." And the result is one of the most memorable moments in the film.

The Bag Man
File this under: movies you forgot existed. As much as he's a bonafide legend, and will go down as one of the great actors of his time, Robert De Niro still will sign on to the most random, middling fare from time to time. Which brings us to "The Bag Man." Never heard of it? Well, maybe you'll recall when it was first announced a couple years ago under the title "Motel." Still doesn't ring any bells? Don't sweat it because the first trailer is here.

Gambling Man Robert De Niro
It's a little odd to issue a press release noting the actors you are seeking to play a lead role in your film, but if you want to get attention for your hitherto unknown project, it's a way to go we suppose. And certainly one can't ignore the name Robert De Niro.

Grudge Match
“Grudge Match” can’t possibly live up to its billing, which essentially pits "Raging Bull" pugilist Jake La Motta (Robert De Niro) against “Rocky” namesake Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), finally settling the bets of cinematic boxing fans everywhere. The film’s narrative echoes the problem its stars face: can two former champions remind of us why we rooted for them in the first place?

Rounders 2
Ready for some new old news? Here we go: Way back in 2010, The Weinstein Company and Miramax announced a deal that would find TWC putting into production sequels for some of the biggest movies from the studio they once started, as well as developing television offshoots too. Nothing happened. But thanks to new money and investors, these are now back on the docket.

Martin Scorsese Robert De Niro Casino
While the promise of the long-gestating "The Irishman" has kept fans excited for years, the reality of it being made continues to be somewhat vaporous. Certainly, it could be something great with an all-star cast of the long-attached Robert De Niro along with the potential Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel a mouth-watering prospect. But the years continue to stack up, and Scorsese always finds other movies to make besides this one, though De Niro just wants you to know the project still exists and maybe it'll one day still get made.
