De Niro & Pacino

Time to Sue

3/4/2009 8:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Give it a rest    

Tools? Are you out of your mind? These "tools" are legendary actors that gave us great classics that have yet to be seen in todays cinema. Just because its been years since Goodfellas, Casino, Scarface, Godfather, Carlito's way, A Bronx tale, etc... came out, doesn't mean these actors are irrelevant now. They have contributed enormously to films and brought us some of the finest dialogues ever written.

I suggest you watch their films before you start name calling.

"Righteous Kill." is no Godfather, Grunpy old men would have been a better movie.
They took the parts., They could not deliver on the goods. They got
their piece of the movie profits, OOps what profits? This movie tanked.
Who is at fault? Must have been that dam watch. Refund Please?
