Robert De Niro Joins Robert Pattinson in Action-Thriller ‘Idol’s Eye’

Robert De Niro has joined Robert Pattinson in indie heist action-thriller “Idol’s Eye,” set to begin shooting in the fall in Chicago and Toronto.

Benaroya Pictures has come on board to produce and finance, with Olivier Assayas directing.

Charles Gillibert developed and produced the project with CG Cinema, Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, Film 360’s Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Michael Benaroya. Ben Sachs is exec producing for Benaroya Pictures.

International Film Trust, which was co-founded by Benaroya, will be handling foreign sales of the title heading into the summer and the Toronto Film Festival, under the helm of IFT President Christian De Gallegos.

CAA, which arranged financing, will represent domestic rights along with WME.

Assayas directed English-language drama “Clouds of Sils Maria,” which played in competition in Cannes. The film stars Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Grace Moretz and was produced by Gillibert’s GC Cinema.

Pattinson stars with Nicole Kidman, James Franco and Damian Lewis in Werner Herzog’s “Queen of the Desert,” produced by Benaroya.
