Rocky Balboa
Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are set to put the gloves back on - they're rumored to be playing rival boxers in new movie Grudge Match.

De Niro won an Oscar for his role as fighter Jake La Motta in 1980's Raging Bull, while Stallone found fame as down-on-his-luck boxer Rocky Balboa in 1976 film Rocky.

Sylvester Stallone Made No Money From 'Rocky Balboa'

August 7th, 2010 9:00am EDT
Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone is glad his sixth Rocky movie salvaged his film career - but he made no money from the film's $200 million profit.

The Hollywood legend boosted his dwindling popularity by revisiting his most famous franchise for a final installment, Rocky Balboa, in 2006. The bold move worked, and he went on to make a fourth Rambo film in 2008 before teaming up with fellow big-screen action men Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke for new movie The Expendables.

And Stallone is adamant making the 2006 boxing picture was a wise decision - even though he has not banked any of the film's enorm...

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

Indiana Jones
(HollywoodChicago.com) – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.

Russell Crowe thinks he is too old to be an action hero. The 42-year-old star has confessed he is too worn out to perform dangerous stunts in his movies and is on the look out for more sedate roles.
