DMovies - Your platform for thought-provoking cinema

One Robert, many facets

A timeless Robert De Niro is set to impress in 2022 with Wash me in the River, a movie with many of his recognisable trademarks and also some spicy new ingredients

An actor, producer, and director, Robert De Niro has been a familar face on the silver screen since The Godfather, Part II (Francis Ford Coppola), 1974, a springboard for the future legend of the world cinematography. With all imaginable and unimaginable awards – two Academy Awards, Golden Globe Award, Cecil B. DeMille Award, Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award, etc. – and a Presidential Medal of Freedom from U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016, De Niro is a success guarantee for any movie he appears in.

But what impresses the most is that the 77-year-old cinematic tough guy isn’t going to retire at all, being convinced making films and acting as long as you can is the best you can do. As he put it after Dirty Grandpa Dan Mazer, 2016): “I always say, the next thing is grandfathers, then great-grandfathers, then great-great-great grandfathers, so who knows. I’ll go as long as I can. The projects are different but for me all good in different ways.

And it’s not just all talking – yet another hard evidence of the relentlessness of De Niro is scheduled to hit the screens in the spring of 2022, the movie called Wash Me in the River, an action thriller directed by Randall Emmett. Now, are there any doubts about its potential? The world will watch it agape! And it’s even better that you can sneak peek into the future picture thanks to Aleksandra Maj, a movie lover and a gambling expert from KasynoHEX, who has dug out some juicy details on the upcoming movie.


A washed down spring

Wash Me in the River will open in theatres in Norther America in spring of 2022, with European dates to follow. The film was picked up by Avenue, the distribution arm of Highland Film Group, and sold to Easter Europe, UK, Germany, France, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Australia, Russia, Portugal, Greece, and Taiwan. According to the Highland Film Group CEO, Arianne Fisher, ”The market response to the film has been remarkable! Randall has succeeded in directing a very commercial film with a strong artistic vision that our buyers have fully embraced. Our trusted international partners had their eyes on the film for some time now, so being able to wrap principal photography with such a stellar cast amid the pandemic is something we are very proud of.”

The snapshots from the movie are already available on the web, the most popular one depicting Robert De Niro and Jack Huston in action in the surroundings resembling a jungle. De Niro plays a cop pursuing a drug addict seeking revenge for the death of his fiancé. Willa Fitzgerald, Machine Gun Kelly, John Malkovich, Quavo, and Taylor Kitsch are also a part of the picture, but it’s De Niro that most are waiting to see in action again. As Quavo acknowledged to Billboard, It’s just an honour to be on the screen with Robert De Niro. I’m just blessed and I can’t wait for y’all to see it. I couldn’t wait to tell my Mom dukes that I’m gonna be on the screen and kicked it with him. He’s a nice dude.

The director of the movie, Randall Emmett, is exuding confidence: “I couldn’t be more excited to work with Bob again after many collaborations, including The Irishman (Martin Scorsese, 2019) as a producer. I’m so grateful that he is supporting me as a filmmaker now. Colson was always my first choice to play the lead in the movie and John has been an icon of mine since childhood. Having them both attached with Bob is a dream come true.”


The De Niro lowdown

Not to idle while anticipating for Wash Me in the River, you might want to re-watch one of the staples. Here’s a list of the best films starring Robert De Niro

1. Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1976):

There might be some corny rags-to-riches stories out there, but not this undying classic, which elevates an average taxi driver to a hero ran.


2. Raging Bull (Martin Scorsese, 1980):

In the age when bloggers are earning more in the ring than professional boxers, it might be nostalgic to plunge into the old-school world of rage, jealousy, and self-destruction. Probably the most famous film starring De Niro, Raging Bull is an absolute beast.


3. Casino Royale (Martin Campbell, 2006).

Now that you have access to classy online gambling platforms like Betsafe, you might know more about gambling than most people back in 2006 – and you might even mock the blunders of the movie – but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Casino Royale is a breathtaking performance of sharp gambling minds and a must-watch movie for casino games lovers.


Only about half a year left for your favourite charter to enliven the screen, and it must be worth waiting for!
