Robert De Niro will star in the gangster movie Wise Guys and will play the two main roles

Warner Bros. Discovery has announced that Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has signed on to star in a period gangster film called Wise Guys.

This should come as no surprise, as De Niro made a name for himself in the mob genre and has appeared in crime-focused movies like Goodfellas, The Godfather: Part II, The Irishman, and Casino. Barry Levinson, who directed the Oscar-winning film Rain Man, will direct Wise Guys.

De Niro in Goodfellas

Nicholas Pileggi wrote the screenplay for Wise Guys. Pileggi previously wrote the 1985 book Wiseguy, which was adapted for 1990’s Goodfellas. Irwin Winkler, who produced Goodfellas, is a producer on Wise Guy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wise Guys centers on two mid-20th-century Italian-American crime bosses, Vito Genovese and Frank Costello. “In 1957, Genovese attempted to assassinate Costello but failed, although he was injured and decided to retire, as much as one can retire from the mob,” one line of the film’s description reads.

Sources told THR that De Niro will play both characters.

It looks like it’s still early days for Wise Guys as there’s no word yet on the supporting cast or release date. Keep checking with GameSpot for more information.
