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.

Robert De Niro has joined Pattinson in "Clouds Of Sils Maria" director Olivier Assayas' next film. Though plot details are said to be kept under wraps, recent reports reveal this one is based on a 2007 Playboy article called "Boosting The Big Tuna" by Hillel Levin and is inspired by actual events (details here. it was once a project for director Todd Field). The story follows a bunch of regular criminals who accidentally rob a porn store backed by Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo. No word yet on either Pattinson or De Niro's roles in what's being described as a sophisticated heist action-thriller, but filming will begin in October with production to take place in Chicago and Toronto. Variety adds that Rachel Weisz is also in talks to join the cast.

Taissa Farmiga and Karen Gillan are joining Ethan Hawke and John Travolta (!) in Ti West's "In A Valley Of Violence." The plot will center on "Paul (Hawke), a drifter with nothing to lose who seeks revenge on the thugs who killed his best friend. Farmiga will play a young woman who runs the town’s hotel with her older sister and helps Paul in his quest for vengeance." Hell yeah, sign us up. The actresses will play sisters, with things getting rolling on this one next month. [Deadline/Deadline]

French heartthrob Romain Duris has landed the lead role in a brewing Jean-Jacques Cousteau biopic. Xavier Giannoli will direct the film, titled "Pour vous faire plaisir." Pierre Niney will co-star and filming will begin in August. [Cineuropa]
