Jason Clarke stars as an elite, highly trained, deep cover operative who loses everything and disappears into Brooklyn. Years later he resurfaces, serving as a beat cop, who just discovered the global organization he was dedicated to fighting is now operating in his new backyard. De Niro will play a cop that assists Clarke. Omar Sy also stars in the film, which Stephen Gaghan and Allison Shearmur will produce.
Prolific actor De Niro has been on both ends of the critical spectrum with his last two films- Oscar-nominated “Silver Linings Playbook” and rom-com flop “The Big Wedding”. He will next appear in the comedy “Last Vegas” and Luc Besson thriller “Malavita”.
De Niro is repped by CAA.
