‘Righteous’ reunion at premiere

Pacino, De Niro attend film's NYC opening

NEW YORK — One would think Midtown’s multi-level club, Terminal 5, would be a big enough venue for Robert De Niro and Al Pacino to celebrate the Gotham bow of their new pic “Righteous Kill.”

Yet the large preem crowd, was so star-struck by the duo, they managed to back the men into a corner causing De Niro to make a quick exit through a side door soon after arriving.

Others, like helmer Jon Avnet, Carla Gugino, Chevy Chase, Jane Rosenthal, Julian Schnabel and recent Toronto stand-out Mickey Rourke, fared a bit better and stayed to enjoy the party’s burgers and fries.

The film marks De Niro and Pacino’s first teaming in 13 years and Avnet said it wasn’t too difficult to get both thesps back together.

“Once Bob was interested, I asked him, ‘Who is your dream castmate?’ ” Avnet said. “He said Al, and within a week it was a done deal. That’s fast for anybody, but for Al it’s unheard of.”
