Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, Morgan Freeman are all set to collaborate in a comedy action movie, The Comeback Trail, and we are asking ourselves if the news of the trio-collab can be true, because it is just too good to be true. The trio of Oscar-winning legends coming together for The Comeback Trail might possibly be one of the few to see so many talents in a single movie. The movie which is based on Harry Hurwitz's 1982 film of the same name will be directed by Bad Boys writer, George Gallo.
Hollywood Reporter have confirmed the roping in of the three legends for the action comedy which is heading the Cannes market next week with Storyboard Media repping international sales.
According to the entertainment website, ‘’The Comeback Trail will see Taxi Driver actor, De Niro play Max Barber deep 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. Surprisingly, Duke somehow rises to the occasion, thereby redeeming his past misdeeds, and brings Max and others along on the same journey’’.
The shoot is reported to go on floors this June in New Mexico.
