Four join De Niro, Pacino in ‘Kill’

Leguizamo, Futterman to co-star in Avnet film

Brian Dennehy, John Leguizamo, Dan Futterman, Trilby Glover and pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek have joined the cast of “Righteous Kill,” opposite Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.

Lensing begins Tuesday in Connecticut and New York with Jon Avnet directing. Carla Gugino, 50 Cent and Donnie Wahlberg also star.

The film, scripted by Russell Gewirtz (“Inside Man”), follows long time police detectives as they investigate a series of vigilante killings in New York City. Dennehy’s in negotiations to join the cast.

The Nu Image/Millennium production will be distributed domestically by Overture Films.  “Righteous Kill” is produced by  Avnet, Avi Lerner, Alexandra Milchan, Daniel Rosenberg, Rob Cowan and Randall Emmett.

 It’s the second teaming for Nu Image/Millennium with Overture, which partnered on the comedy-caper “Mad Money” with Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, and Katie Holmes.

Nu Image/Millennium is in production on “Major Movie Star,” starring Jessica Simpson, and recently completed “John Rambo” with Sylvester Stallone, “88 Minutes” with Pacino and “Cleaner” with Samuel L. Jackson and Eva Mendes.  

Overture, which launched last fall, is set to begin production this month on “Traitor” with Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce, followed by “Last Chance Harvey” with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.
