Robert De Niro's newest movie has him seeing double!
A Warner Bros. Discovery film, Wise Guys will feature De Niro as warring 20th century Italian American crime bosses Vito Genovese and Frank Costello, per the outlets.
"In 1957, Genovese attempted to assassinate Costello but failed, although he was wounded and decided to retire, as much as one can retire from the Mafia," THR reports of the premise, in part.
The screenplay will be written by Nicholas Pileggi, who also wrote the 1985 book Wiseguys. Though unrelated to the upcoming film, Wiseguys was the basis for De Niro's 1990 movie Goodfellas. Wise Guys also boasts Goodfellas' Irwin Winkler as a producer.

The screen legends came together in March for a screening of the film at United Palace, hosted by the Tribeca Film Festival, which De Niro co-founded in 2002 to revive the cultural scene of lower Manhattan in the wake of 9/11.
Pacino, 82, and author Michael Hainey participated in a discussion about the seminal mafia film from director Francis Ford Coppola before Tribeca screened the film's restoration.
De Niro and Pacino previously joined Coppola, 83, onstage at the 94th Academy Awards, where the iconic director reflected on his magnum opus' milestone anniversary.
