'Idol's Eye': Olivier Assayas' Movie is Still a Go with Rob, Sylvester Stallone & Rachel Weisz as Part of the Cast!

'Idol's Eye': Le Film d'Olivier Assayas est Toujours d'Actualité avec Rob, Sylvester Stallone & Rachel Weisz au Casting!

Le réalisateur français Olivier Assayas confiait dernièrement lors de divers interviews le fait de pouvoir de nouveau, soutiens financiers à l'appui, réaliser le film 'Idol's Eye' qui avait été annulé juste avant son tournage en 2014. Vous vous souvenez de ce projet avec Rob et Robert de Niro? Et bien il semblerait qu'il soit réellement revenu à la vie deux ans après et que Rob soit toujours attaché au projet! Robert de Niro quant'à lui est remplacé par Sylvester Stallone pour des raisons de planning, et le tournage devrait avoir lieu en Février 2017 à Toronto. Rachel Weisz fait aussi parti du casting. 
Inspiré de faits réels, l'histoire suit un petit voleur (Robert Pattinson) qui vole accidentellement un diamant bleu appartenant au patron de la mafia de Chicago Tony Accardo (Sylverster Stallone), ce qui déclenche une guerre entre les deux protagonistes, alors que le FBI est sur leurs traces.

French director Olivier Assayas recently told during various interviews that he could, with financial support this time, make the movie 'Idol's Eye' which was canceled just before its filming in 2014. You remember this project with Rob and Robert de Niro? Well it appears that it's still alive two years later and that Rob is still attached to the project! Robert de Niro is replaced by Sylvester Stallone for schedule reasons, and filming should take place in February 2017 in Toronto. Rachel Weisz is also part of the cast.
Inspired by actual events, the story follows a petty thief (Robert Pattinson) who accidentally steals a blue diamond belonging to Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo (Sylvester Stallone), triggering a war between the two protagonists, while the FBI is on
their tracks.

From Sceendaily:
Stallone replaces Robert De Niro in the heist thriller and will star alongside Robert Pattinson and Rachel Weisz.
Lotus Entertainment has launched sales here on Idol’s Eye, Olivier Assayas’ cherished heist thriller that will now star Sylvester Stallone as Chicago mob boss Tony Accardo.
Stallone replaces Robert De Niro and takes his place alongside Robert Pattinson and Rachel Weisz on the $25m project, which has been reassembled and is ready to shoot in Toronto in February after financing fell through in late 2014.
Lotus came on board to finance and sell international rights after Toronto International Film Festival. WME Global assembled the revised package and represents US rights.
Pattinson plays a petty thief who unknowingly steals a blue diamond from Accardo and sparks a war between the two men as they strive to stay ahead of the FBI. Charles Gillibert, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Stuber, Scott Lambert and Michael Benaroya are producing. (...)

Sylvester Stallone Replaces Robert De Niro In Olivier Assyas’ ‘Idol’s Eye’ With Robert Pattinson & Rachel Weisz

Some projects fall apart, but the persistence of the filmmakers and the right number of circumstances allows them to live again. Such is the case with Olivier Assayas‘ “Idol’s Eye.” Slated to star Robert Pattinson, Robert De Niro, and Rachel Weisz, financing was pulled at the last minute in 2014, leading the film to get scrapped before it had a chance to go in front of cameras. But back in September, Assayas teased the project could be back on, and it looks like it’s coming together again, albeit with one casting change.
Sylvester Stallone has replaced De Niro in the movie, which still has Pattinson and Weisz attached to star. Inspired by actual events, the story follows a petty thief who accidentally steals a blue diamond belonging to Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo, leading to a battle between the duo, all while the FBI closes in on the pair. Assayas goes into thriller mode? I’m in. And I’m presuming Stallone will play the gangland figure, which could be quite something.
Production on the film starts in February in Toronto with a $25 million budget, and the timing may explain why De Niro had to drop out: Martin Scorsese‘s long awaited “The Irishman” might start shooting around the same time.
