Stallone and De Niro to jump back into the boxing ring?

This is kinda tasty. Production Weekly tweeted (yeah, we know) a rumour that Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro might be teaming up for a new boxing film entitled Grudge Match.

According to THR, the film “revolves around retired boxers Billy “The Kid” McGuigan and Henry “Razor” Sharp, lifelong bitter rivals who are coaxed out of retirement and into the ring for one final grudge match — 50 years after their last title fight.”

Writer Tim Kelleher sold the Grudge Match pitch to Warner Bros back in May.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any other news other than the Production Weekly tweet to confirm Stallone and DeNiro’s involvement. Of course, we wouldn’t have even reported it if we didn’t feel that PW had proven the veracity of their tweets in the past.

So, could Rocky Balboa and Jake LaMotta be facing off for a boxing match in the near future?

More news as it develops.

Discuss: Rocky vs. Jake. Who ya got?
