Grudge Match: De Niro Trolls Stallone On Set

In Grudge Match, out this Christmas, there’ll be a big fight between Sylvester Stallone’s character (Razor) and De Niro’s character (‘The Kid’ – excellent names as ever by Stallone). And during the filming of this sequence, De Niro informed Stallone that he was mending a rib injury, so Sly should really go easy on him: “Listen, Sly… I had a bad rib injury not long ago that I’m still nursing, so please – don’t hurt me!”.  But it turns out the whole thing was a ruse, because when the fight was over and De Niro had actually unloaded on Sly: “… a grinning De Niro delivered his knockout punch, telling Stallone: ‘I never had a rib injury – I just told you that so you wouldn’t kill me!’  Sly looked so shocked, it was hilarious”.  I’m sure Stallone seen the funny side to it too…

Speaking of funny, last we heard about Grudge Match, it tested well at pre-screenings.  There are no negative reports and it is supposedly a very funny movie.  That’s good to hear, because Sly usually can’t get comedy (in his movies) right, at least not intentionally.  This is a good year for Sly, shooting Expendables 3, Escape Plan and then Grudge Match.  Not to mention Walter Hill’s Bullet to the Head, from earlier in the year.

Escape Plan will hit theatres this December.  For good measure, the trailer one more time..

“Listen, Sly…I had a bad rib injury not long ago that I’m still nursing, so please – don’t hurt me!”
