The Comedian starring Robert De Niro has set a release date.
The film tells the tale of a comic icon struggling to reinvent himself as his audience only associates him with his former TV character. He’s a strain on his younger brother (DeVito) and his wife (LuPone), and is being forced to serve out a sentence doing community service for accosting an audience member. While there, he finds inspiration by meeting Mann’s character, the daughter of a sleazy Florida real estate mogul (Keitel).
De Niro joins Leslie Mann, Edie Falco, Harvey Keitel, Danny DeVito, Patti LuPone, and Veronica Ferres in the film which is set for release on February 3rd, 2017.
