Robert De Niro and Sly Stallone are set to play aging boxers who want to settle a score in Grudge Match.

Deadline.com confirms that De Niro and Stallone are on board for the Warner Bros. production, which was first announced in May. The actors, who respectively portrayed Jake LaMotta and Rocky Balboa in their early years, will get another jab at pro boxing roles under the direction of Peter Segal (Get Smart).

Kevin Hart will join them on the sidelines as the promoter of the boxing match who is tasked with convincing the old fighters to get back in the ring.
