Robert De Niro and John Travolta Are Headed to Appalachia

The pair will co-star in Killing Season, directed by Ghost Rider's Mark Steven Johnson. Obviously, the film is an action movie. Less obviously (at least to us), it will also be the first time the two actors appear together onscreen. De Niro's character is an American military veteran, while Travolta will take on the role of a "European tourist" who, it turns out, is also a veteran β€” a Serbian one "bent on revenge." The target of his revenge isn't totally clear, but this all takes place in and around a remote, Appalachian cabin, so the options are pretty limited. [Deadline]
