Robert De Niro is in negotiations to star in a movie which pays tribute to him.

Producers of independent film SEARCHING FOR BOBBY DE NIRO are keen to sign the movie star up for the film, which stars Jack Palance and Drew Barrymore's mother JAID.

The movie will follow the fortunes of a De Niro-obsessed Italian-American attempting to make his first film.

Kathleen Turner and Steve Buscemi are also in negotiations to play themselves in the film.
