Peter Segal - Peter Segal Shoots Multiple Endings For Grudge Match

Director Peter Segal has filmed multiple endings for his new boxing movie with Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in a bid to keep the movie's conclusion under wraps ahead of its release.

De Niro, who famously portrayed fighter Jake LaMotta in cult classic Raging Bull, goes head to head with Rocky star Stallone for the new action film, about a pair of ageing sports rivals who are coaxed out of retirement for one last match, and the veteran actor reveals they had to slug it out for several rounds for the shoot so no one onset could leak the ending and spoil the picture for fans.

During an interview on U.S. breakfast show Today, De Niro explained, "Pete Segal, the director, shot the ending three ways, where I win, or he wins, or we both win or lose, I forget that, but because there were so many extras around, he didn't want anyone to give it away."

Grudge Match will open across America on Christmas Day (25Dec13) and elsewhere in January (13).
