Borsalino Films have landed the rights to “Gambling Man” and have their sights set on Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro to take on the lead role.
The film is to be based on casino giant Gary Green’s best-selling book “Gambling Man”.
While De Niro has been named as a strong contender for the highly sought after role, he is among other actors being considered.
According to PRWeb, Borsalino Films secured the rights to the project just prior to Christmas. The film is set to become the first casino film based on the first-person recount of a genuine casino player.
No writer or director has been attached to the project as of yet.
De Niro, 70, is still in high demand across Hollywood. He has recently appeared in “American Hustle”, “Last Vegas” and “Grudge Match”.
