Dennehy and Leguizamo join De Niro and Pacino

BrianDennehy.jpgThere's casting news out for the Righteous Kill film, which brings Al Pacino and Robert De Niro together again, that makes the film sound far more interesting than the previous news of 50 Cent. Now John Leguizamo, Dan Futterman and currently in talks, Brian Dennehy.

If it really gets you excited both Trilby Glover and professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek have signed up for the film too. Yep, that didn't do much for me either.

However the news that Brian Dennehy is in talks is superb. I've always been a fan of his and class him alongside the likes of Gene Hackman, he just has that same real world feel to him, and an edge that makes him...well...edgy!

So now we're looking at a cast list of Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, 50 Cent, the gorgeous Carla Gugino and Donnie Wahlberg. Wahlberg's not so gorgeous as Gugino in my eyes anyway.

According to the news from Coming Soon through Empire, Dennehy is set to play the captain of the partnered cops of De Niro and Pacino, a superb line up. John Leguizamo will be playing a cop that these two clash with, Dan Futterman and Trilby Glover are playing attorneys and Rob Dyrdek is a delinquent. In the film!

If I remember rightly Gugino is playing De Niro's girlfriend, and who knows what 50 Cent will be doing.

The story for Righteous Kill comes from screenwriter Russell Gewirtz and follows the two long time cops as they investigate a series of vigilante type killings, Jon Avnet is directing.

Sounds pretty strong, and quite a varied cast list there, all with some strong talents and most in the field of acting.



As if Pacino and De Niro together is not enough eh? :P

My question is this, are they legitimizing 50 Cent's film career (?) by casting him alongside all this acting heavyweights? This is what's all wrong with Hollywood these days.
