Robert De Niro and Danny Devito Shooting New Film in New York

Danny DeVito

Robert De Niro and Danny Devito are shooting The Comedian, in Queens. Robert, 72, and Danny, 71, are being directed by  Oscar-winner Taylor Hackford. The movie also stars Edie Falco.

De Niro will play a toxic insult comic on the order of a Don Rickles (with whom De Niro starred in Casino). It will be De Niro’s second time working the crowd for laughs, after he played the iconic stalker/aspiring comedian Rupert Pupkin in The King Of Comedy. Jackie falls into an unexpected friendship with a younger woman, Harmony (Leslie Mann), at a wedding. The project has been one both De Niro and Art Linson the writer, have been trying to pull together for years, and the stand-up material was written by Jeffrey Ross, a staple of Friars and celebrity roasts on Comedy Central who usually outshines the rest of the dais. Linson wrote the Hollywood-centric pic What Just Happened?, which starred De Niro as a harried producer.
