Depending on the day of the week, Robert De Niro is either one of the greatest actors of all time or a wash-up former legend slumming it for quick paychecks. Today, it looks like he's most certainly former. He's signed on to join 'Candy Store,' the next project from Oscar winning filmmaker Stephen Gaghan.
Though he's already won an Oscar for 'Traffic' and was nominated for 'Syriana,' Stephen Gaghan has been relatively quiet recently. But he's looking to get back into writing and directing with 'Candy Store,' which has lined up a powerhouse cast with Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt both in talks to join the film.
