(Newser) – They were both in Godfather II, but never on-screen together. They teamed up for Heat, but only for a few scenes. Now Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are finally going to tear up the screen together for a whole movie. "This is an event in world history," says one producer, without irony, unveiling the project at the Cannes Film Festival.

 

The film is called "Righteous Kill," about two cops hunting a serial killer, and it begins shooting in August, Variety reports. Nu Image will produce and Jon Avent will direct the $60 million indie.
