Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman star in the upcoming action comedy The Comeback Trail.

Directed and co-written by George Gallo, whose pen gave us the cult classic Midnight Run, this one’s a tale about two movie producers who come up with an insurance scam in order to pay their mob debt. The only problem is that they just can’t seem to kill off their star.

This is actually based on a 1982 film of the same name by Harry Hurwitz.

Also starring Tommy Lee Jones, Zach Braff, Emile Hirsch, Eddie Griffin and Kate Katzman, The Comeback Trail is set for a US theatrical release in mid-November. We await local details.
