Among the scope of the tragedy that was 'Sopranos' star James Gandolfini's passing in recent months, we had to wonder what would become of Gandolfini's HBO series 'Criminal Justice.' Now, it seems HBO has swapped one legendary Hollywood mobster for another, as Robert De Niro will step in to fill the role first occupied by James Gandolfini to get 'Criminal Justice' on to television.

Since Robert De Niro has been spoofing his mafia roles and tough guy image for more than a decade now, it shouldn't be surprising he's goofing on another of his signature roles (this time Jake La Motta) for a new comedy. In 'Grudge Match' he plays an over-the-hill boxer who returns to the ring to fight one of his toughest opponents, with Sylvester Stallone (playing on his Rocky Balboa character) as his rival.

'The Family' Review

It is no easier for me to report this than it is for you to hear it, but we're all adults and let's get real: Robert De Niro's name on a film project is now more a red flag of warning than a sign of quality. For every 'Silver Linings Playbook' there's a 'Big Wedding' or 'Righteous Kill' or a slapped-together piece of tone-deaf dross like 'The Family.'

Though we've seen a number of young-adult novels translated to the big screen only to flop ('Beautiful Creatures,' 'The Host') and may yet still (we're curious to see what happens with 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'), it's still considered a hot genre for adaptations. So it's no surprise Disney wants to bring the YA hit 'Artemis Fowl' to the big screen. What is surprising is that it's being produced by Robert De Niro and Harvey Weinstein.

'Last Vegas' Trailer: All of Your Favorite Old Movie Stars Throw a Wild Party

What do you get when Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline journey to Las Vegas in a movie? If this were a few decades ago, they'd probably all double cross and kill each other. But today? They get to play old buddies having one last hurrah in a similar fashion to 'The Hangover.' Because the only thing funner than old, drunk people are old, drunk movie stars. Or at least that's what everyone involved with 'Last Vegas' thinks.

'Last Vegas' Trailer: It's Like 'The Hangover' With Old People

Okay: that headline is unfair. The first 'Last Vegas' trailer isn't 'The Hangover' with old's 'The Hangover' with four actors who were, once upon a time, some of the absolute best in the business. There was a time when when Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline headlining a movie would have been a major event. But what about now? The 'Last Vegas' trailer certainly thinks this is a big deal, but is it?

In the pantheon of odd cinematic fathers and sons, you don't get much stranger than Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf. Although it's difficult to imagine the two of them sharing any DNA, they're both attached to star in 'Spy's Kid,' which will tell the true story of a traitorous spy who used his son to continue his espionage from behind bars.
