Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Tommy Lee Jones to star in action-comedy, Comeback Trail
The project, written by Josh Posner and Galo, is heading to the Cannes market next week
Oscar-winning Hollywood actors Tommy Lee Jones, Morgan Freeman, and Robert De Niro are set to headline action-comedy, The Comeback Trail.
Bad Boys writer George Gallo is directing the film, which is based on Harry Hurwitz's 1982 film of the same name.
The film is produced by Steven Tyler Sahlein, Richard Salvatore and David Ornston, along with Joy Sirott Hurwitz and Julie Lott Gallo.
The project, written by Josh Posner and Galo, is heading to the Cannes market next week with Storyboard Media in charge of international distribution.
In the film, De Niro will play Max Barber who, in debt to Freeman's mob boss, creates an insurance fraud by casting washed-up, suicidal cowboy/movie star Duke Montana (Jones) in a poorly written Western with the intention of killing him during the first days of filming. But Duke somehow rises to the occasion, thereby redeeming his past misdeeds, and brings Max and others along on the same journey.
The Comeback Trail is expected to go on floors in June in New Mexico.
