Robert De Niro


In the feature film debut by Irish director Garry McKendry, De Niro will play Hunter, the mentor and best friend of Statham's character Danny.

Robert De Niro has added to the star power of a new Australian action thriller, joining Brits Jason Statham and Clive Owen and Lachy Hulme in "The Killer Elite". Dominic Purcell and actress Yvonne Strahovski have also joined the cast of Garry McKendry's film, which has just started shooting in Australia, according to Moviehole.net.

In the movie, a retired Navy Seal (Statham) is blackmailed to kill a special forces operative after his mentor and friend, played by De Niro, is captured by an Arab sheik. Produced by Inferno Entertainment, the action thriller is expected to be premiere next year in the U.S.

The Killer Elite is actually based on a novel titled "The Feather Men" by Ranulph Fiennes, which was first published in 1991.
