Raging Bull vs. Rocky Balboa To Hit The Big Screen

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to NBC News, actors Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are going fight each other, in a boxing match, in a 2014-scheduled film "Grudge Match."

"Entourage" creator/writer Doug Ellin was crafting the storyline in which De Niro plays a retired boxer in the movie.

De Niro and Stallone were the stars of the two most famous boxing movies in the history of cinema. De Niro, 69, won his second Oscar for playing the legendary Jake LaMotta in 1980's "Raging Bull," while Stallone, 66, created a legacy with six Rocky movies where he played journeyman turned champion Rocky Balboa. The first Rocky movie, in 1976, won three Oscars - including Best Picture - among its ten nominations.

I'm a sucker for a boxing movie so I'm interested to see what this'll look like.

nooooo my favorite actor (De Niro) degrading himself again in his late career. His choice of roles has gotten so bad its almost inexplicable.
