Kim Basinger has joined the cast of Grudge Match for Warner Bros. and director Peter Segal (Get Smart).
We reported in May that screen icons Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone will star as two retired boxers who dust off the gloves for one last fight. Kim Basinger will play a woman with ties to both characters. Kevin Hart also stars as a fight promoter.
Tim Kelleher wrote the original draft of the screenplay, with Entourage creator Doug Ellin providing the most recent rewrite. Bill Gerber, Michael Ewing, and Mark Steven Johnson are producing.
No production schedule was released for the comedy. Kim Basinger was last seen in Charlie St. Cloud, and she is currently filming director Paul Haggis' Third Person.
