We might be witnessing the second coming of Rupert Pupkin.
Robert De Niro wont however be wearing the spiffy suit but he will return as a stand-up comic on the big screen.
The Comedian,by Art Linson, will have De Niro playing an insult comic eerily similar to Don Rickles.
Jeffrey Ross,who is known for his roasting skills, was the consultant on the movie script. Ross is a devoted and respected integral member of the Comedy Central and Friars Club roasts.
Ross personally penned the stand-up material that will be used in the movie.
New York City will play host to the movie which is slated to begin the fall.
