Robert De Niro and Zac Efron are set to form one of the more unlikely big-screen pairings of recent years, with the duo in talks to star in comedy Driving Dick Kelly.
According to THR, De Niro is currently in talks to play a former army general convinced that his grandson (Efron) is on the brink of marrying the wrong woman.
Deciding to take matters into his own hands, De Niro plans a road trip to Florida to coincide with spring break, in the hope that Efron will decide he’s not ready to give up the single life just yet.
Mismatched buddy antic are sure to follow, and while the pairing might look a bit bizarre on paper, there should be plenty of charisma there to carry it off, provided the script is right.
I Give It A Year director Dan Mazer is set to helm the project, which had previously been titled Dirty Grandpa. We’d say Driving Dick Kelly is a better commercial choice…
