Norton may keep ‘Score’

Pic would team thesp with De Niro

In a high-octane thesp pairing, Edward Norton is near a deal to join Robert De Niro in “The Score,” the Mandalay Pictures drama that Frank Oz will direct in the spring.

Norton would play a young man who thwarts the retirement plans of a master thief by blackmailing the guy into pulling off one last heist. The film, produced by Gary Foster and Lee Rich, is being financed by Mandalay, which will distribute through Paramount Pictures. Mandalay developed the project through a spec script by Danny Taylor, which Kario Salem has rewritten. The film has been greenlit for a late April start in Montreal.

The film will mark Norton’s first film with De Niro. Last seen as an actor in “Fight Club,” Norton recently completed his directorial debut on “Keeping the Faith,” a comedy in which he stars with Ben Stiller and Jenna Elfman for Entertainment. The film debuts April 14. Norton is repped by Endeavor.
