Stallone & DeNiro in a Grudge Match?

Earlier today Slashfilm reported on a rumor that Sly Stallone and Robert DeNiro may team up for “Grudge Match.” Sly and DeNiro would play…

… “retired boxers Billy “The Kid” McGuigan and Henry “Razor” Sharp, lifelong bitter rivals who are coaxed out of retirement and into the ring for one final grudge match — 50 years after their last title fight.”

Although fans would love to see Rocky take on The Raging Bull, I’m not sure now is the time for this type of movie. Sly has Expendables II on deck and then hopefully something like Hunter or even Expendables III. And let’s face it, according to the synopsis of Grudge Match, Sly and DeNiro were supposed to have fought 50 years ago in a title fight — so they’d have been what 14, 15 years old? Perhaps when Sly and DeNiro have aged a bit, Grudge Match would be right.
