Warner Bros. Pictures Boxing comedy Grudge Match debuted a picture via USA Today featuring opponents Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro getting bothered by fight promoter Kevin Hart.
Director Peter Segal says Stallone was a little scared about poking fun at his iconic boxing persona “Sly had never really winked at his iconic character. And he was nervous. But once he got into it, he lost all the nervousness.”.
Grudge Match is directed by Peter Segal (Tommy Boy, My Fellow Americans, 50 First Dates) with a script from “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin and “Late Show with David Letterman” scribe Rodney Rothman. The story unites Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, known for iconic turns as boxers in Rocky and Raging Bull respectively, as two bitter boxing rivals who are coaxed back into the ring for a grudge match 50 years after they fought for the title.
Stars Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal.
