Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Grudge Match” stars award-winning movie legends Oscar® winner Robert De Niro and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match. Peter Segal directs the comedy. Henry “Razor” Sharp and Billy “The Kid” McDonnen are two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor announced his retirement, effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, a boxing promoter makes them an offer they can’t refuse: re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all.

The film also stars Kevin Hart, Oscar® winner Alan Arkin, Oscar® winner Kim Basinger, Jon Bernthal, and young film newcomer Camden Gray. Segal is directing from a screenplay by Tim Kelleher and Rodney Rothman, story by Tim Kelleher. The film is produced by Bill Gerber, Mark Steven Johnson, Michael Ewing, Segal, and Ravi Mehta. Jane Rosenthal and Kevin King-Templeton are the executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Bill Gerber Production, a Callahan Filmworks Production, a Peter Segal film, “Grudge Match.” The film opens December 25, 2013 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sports action violence, sexual content and language.
