De Niro rejoins Mob

Robert De Niro"Goodfellas" and "The Godfather Part II" star Robert De Niro is reportedly heading back to the mob.

Daily Variety reports De Niro's Tribeca Films is producing and he is expected to star in the film adaptation of Don Winslow's new novel, "The Winter of Frankie Machine." The yet-to-be-published novel is about a mob hitman who retires to run a bait shop. He jumps back into the fray, however, when he finds out he has been targeted for a hit.

Although De Niro once vowed to give up mafia-related roles, he found "Frankie Machine" too good to pass up, his Tribeca partner, Jane Rosenthal told Variety. "The lesson here is, never say never," she said.
