Grudge Match (2013)

Proof that Robert De Niro might just do anything at this stage of his career is he willingness to step into the ring against Sylvester Stallone to satirize the genre that brought both men the most legitimate acclaim of their respective careers. But some noteworthy writers have worked on this script, so hopefully the dialogue and scenarios won’t be wasted on the entire cast. Can we hope for a foul-mouthed Kim Basinger?
