At a recent screening I overheard an interesting response after seeing the trailer for Bob De Niro’s latest "Hide and Seek". A young lass spoke "Why does he keep doing this shit? Doesn’t he realize it’s just more rubbish?". Whether he does or not, ones got to say it’s a fair claim : Mr Tribeca has been swimming in some pretty salty waters for a while. Even "Meet the Fockers" played as wonky as my mildly-melted vinyl copy of "Stars on 45".
Might the cinema great be leaving the middling behind? Maybe, according to a report at Digital Spy.
According to the site, De Niro and Martin Scorsese are talking about doing a sequel to one of ‘their’ best efforts : "Taxi Driver". "I was talking with Martin Scorsese about doing what I guess you’d call a sequel to Taxi Driver, where Travis Bickle is older", says De Niro.
Um, Yah, Yes Please! Enough with the ‘Fockin’ money-grabs and back to the great guns you’re renowned for.
