Al Pacino takes over from Robert De Niro in Son of No One with Channing Tatum

Posted by LiveFor on February 17, 2010

Al Pacino is stepping into the role recently vacated by Robert De Niro in Son of No One, a police thriller starring Channing Tatum (Fighting, Dear John, G.I. Joe) according to Reuters.

Pacino and De Niro always seem to have that connection despite having starred in only a few films together (Heat, Righteous Kill, The Godfather Part 2) so there is no way to tell what effect, if any, this change will have on the film. Pacino’s character will probably be more manic than De Niro would have played him, but that’s about it.

The script, written by director Dito Montiel, centers on a young cop (Tatum) who is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, with an old secret surfacing and threatening to destroy his life and family.

Terrence Howard (who worked with Tatum on Fighting), Ray Liotta and Katie Holmes are in various stages of negotiation to join the cast. It would have been nice to Liotta and De Niro together again after the amazing Goodfellas but that is obviously not going to happen now.

Fighting – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on January 8, 2009

Fighting is both written and directed by Dito Montiel,

Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) has come to New York City with nothing. Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership.

As Shawn’s manager, Harvey introduces him to the corrupt bare-knuckle circuit, where rich men bet on disposable pawns. Almost overnight, he becomes a star brawler, taking down professional boxers, mixed martial arts champs and ultimate fighters in a series of staggeringly intense bouts. But if Shawn ever hopes to escape the dark world in which he’s found himself, he must now face the toughest fight of his life.
