Robert De niro And Al PacinoRobert De Niro and Al Pacino are teaming up to lay the smackdown on a watchmaker and the distributor of their god awful movie "Righteous Kill."

According to reports, De Niro and Pacino filed suit today against Tutima Inc. and Overture Films claiming a series of advertisements for Tutima watches made it look like they endorsed the watches. The ads included images of De Niro and Pacino from "Righteous Kill."

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan, says both actors have signed agreements that prohibit using them for merchandising without their consent.

Bobby and Al are seeking cash for breach of contract, violations of right of publicity and right of privacy laws.
