De Niro, Stallone in talks for `Grudge Match`
London: Actors Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are officially in talks to star in boxing movie `Grudge Match`.
The pair are the hot favourites of director Peter Segal and are currently in negotiation, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Stallone and De Niro are expected to come on board as they`re both fans of the director and have both sent themselves up in comedies in recent years," said a source.
The comedy, which was first announced in 2010, will see the pair go head-to-head in the ultimate boxing face-off.
Doug Ellin, creator of popular TV series `Entourage`, has been chosen by Warner Bros to write the script. The movie is expected to begin filming next year.
