Robert De Niro is all set for the release of his upcoming heartfelt comedy About My Father. The film features the evergreen Robert De Niro and comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. Inspired by the real story of Sebastian Maniscalco’s father, it follows an engaged Italian guy that takes his father along to ‘meet the parents’ on the 4th of July weekend. When his two worlds collide, havoc is bound to arise.
While talking about who he looks up to in the film industry, Robert De Niro said, “I worked with Robert Mitchum twice. I worked with him in The Last Tycoon, and in Cape Fear – which he was in the original; so Marty had kind of a homage or whatever little part in it. And he was terrific, you know cause as a kid I’d see his movies.. and we had Gregory Peck too in it. The actors I admired were Brando, James Dean – he only did three movies but he was great and Montgomery Clift, I never worked with him. Brando I worked with and Matt I knew a little bit personally before we worked. He’s always great at whatever he does.”
Helmed by Laura Terruso and written by Austen Earl and Sebastian Maniscalco, the film also features Leslie Bibb and Kim Cattrall in pivotal roles.
About My Father hits theatres on May 26, 2023.
