Robert De Niro and John Travolta are joining forces on a new action film. THR reports that they are set to star in Killing Season for Millenium Films and Corsan Pictures. Production is slated to start Jan. 16. Gotti: In the Shadow of My Farther was initially slated to start for Travolta in January, but that is not looking like it will go into production anytime soon.
Ghost Rider's Mark Steven Johnson is directing from a script by Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman). The film takes place in the Appalachian Mountains. De Niro will play "a military vet, living in a remote cabin, who is visited by a European tourist (Travolta), who turns out to be a former Serbian soldier looking for revenge."
Let's hope that this is better than Ghost Rider, but if Daugherty's script is good I am sure that will help. The story sounds pretty cool. What are your thoughts?
