I thought he was done with Hollywood after his last rant.

i have a feeling this wont work unless it is a light action more on comedy type of film. de niro is good in a solid drama like godfather or solid comedy like meet the parents..not much in betweeners, unlike shia who is the exact opposite he cannot immerse himself in purely on comedy because it looks corny and he is not yet that developed in dramatic scenes, but is notably an actor that can excel on right projects, i hope the movie will showcase that they compliment each other if ever this project happens.

The combo seems good, everything that de niro touches turns to gold.
