Robert De Niro's The Family Gets It's First Official Trailer [Video]

Robert De Niro has a new film coming out called The Family, in which the acting great plays the head of a notorious mafia clan who is relocated with his family to the north of France under the witness protection program, with hilarious consequences. Today (June 5) the trailer for the film was released online, which you can watch below.

From Taken director Luc Besson, and based on the Tonino Benacquista novel Malavita (with Besson and Michael Caleo handling the screenplay), the film follows the Manzoni family as they are relocated to Normandy, France, by the witness relocation program. Whilst there, the family struggle to cope with such a slowed-down pace of life, and soon their old ways become too hard to hide anymore, with the family reverting to their old ways and the mob soon proving to be a threat once again as they try effortlessly to track down the family in their new surroundings. The film see's Michelle Pfeiffer star as De Niro's trophy wife and Glee's Dianna Agron as their daughter and The Wrestler's John D'leo as their son, with Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Pastore and Jon Freda also staring in the fish-out-of-water action comedy.

The movie is set for a US release date of September 20 and will hit cinemas in the UK on November 8. De Niro, meanwhile, will be next seen in the ensemble comedy Last Vegas, alongside fellow aged actors Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. He also has Motel, Killing Season and American Hustle coming out this year too.
