De Niro, Pacino Get Company in Righteous Kill

Incredible cast gets incredibler.

by | September 4, 2007 | Comments

Film fans had to wait decades to see Robert De Niro and Al Pacino share scenes in 1995’s Heat. Their second act — next year’s Righteous Kill — is coming together much more quickly than the first, and ComingSoon has news on new additions to the cast.

The police drama — in which De Niro and Pacino play a pair of detectives searching for a vigilante killer — already boasted the participation of the two heavyweights, not to mention Carla Gugino, Donnie Wahlberg, and, um, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Now, ComingSoon reports, the production has added John Leguizamo, Dan Futterman, Trilby Glover, and Rob Dyrdek — and Brian Dennehy is in talks to join them. From the article:

Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge) plays a cop in the NYPD who butts heads with Pacino and De Niro as they search for a serial killer. Dennehy (Showtime’s “Death of a Salesman,” Assault on Precinct 13) takes on the role of their captain. Futterman (A Mighty Heart) and Glover (The Starter Wife) both play attorneys, and Dyrdek (MTV’s “Rob and Big“) a delinquent, who crosses paths with the detectives during their investigations.

Righteous Kill is being directed by Jon Avnet, from a script by Russell Gewirtz, and is scheduled to begin filming…today, actually. How about that?
