Robert De Niro’s latest movie is a comedy based on an award-winning book by author Robert-Kimmel Smith. The War with Grandpa will be released in movie theaters on October 9th. The picture focuses on a boy who must share his bedroom with his grandfather, who has just moved into his home.
The actor, who won an Academy Award in the best-supporting actor category for his portrayal of a young Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 film, The Godfather Part II, and garnered a best actor nomination for the Oscar for his role in Martin Scorsese’s 1976 film Taxi Driver, starred as a grandfather in another movie back in 2016, Dirty Grandpa. He played opposite Zac Efron in the role of his grandson.
Mr. De Niro will forever be known in Las Vegas history as Ace Rothstein in the movie Casino. His latest film will most likely garner lots of laughs. The War with Grandpa also stars Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Cheech Marin, Jane Seymour, Laura Marano, and past CYInterview guest Rob Riggle [see here].
