Robert De Niro does the family comedy thing in the upcoming movie of the Robert Kimmel Smith  book, The War with Grandpa.

If you think that De Niro’s a good get for a family film you’d be right, but he’s not the only cool name in the cast. He’s joined onscreen by the likes of Uma Thurman, Jane Seymour, Christopher Walken, Cheech Marin and Rob Riggle.

Story-wise, it’s a simple tale of outright war. Young Peter doesn’t take too well to having to share his room with his grandfather, so he declares war in an attempt to get it back. However, his grandfather (De Niro) is more than up for the challenge.

It’s directed by Tim Hill, who has given us past family flicks like Muppets in Space, Hop, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield 2 and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (which has yet to see the light of day).

The War with Grandpa is set to hit cinemas later this year.
