Robert De Niro to play double role in upcoming mafia drama Wise Guys set at Warner Bros
According to Variety, Wise Guys follows Italian American crime bosses Vito Genovese and Frank Costello, who ran their respective families during the 20th century. In 1957, Genovese tried (and failed) to assassinate Costello, who was ultimately injured and attempted to retire from the mafia. De Niro is expected to portray the two main characters.
The movie reunites De Niro and Levinson, who previously teamed on Wag the Dog, Sleeper, the HBO series The Wizard of Lies and What Just Happened. Nicholas Pileggi is penning the screenplay for the gangster drama. Irwin Winkler will serve as a producer on the film.
On the work front, ahead of the release of Wise Guys, De Niro will next be seen in David O. Russell’s upcoming film Amsterdam, Randall emmett’s Wash Me in the River, and Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated Killers of the Flower Moon, which is a Western crime drama about the 1920 Oklahoma murders in the Osage Nation.
