Wise Guys will follow the lives of Italian-American crime bosses Vito Genovese and Frank Costello, who both operated their respective families in the middle of the 20th century.
In 1957, Genovese attempted and failed to assassinate Costello. The incident, however, led Costello to relinquish his power to Genovese and retire.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, De Niro will play both characters in the film.
Nicholas Pileggi wrote the script, while Irwin Winkler (Rocky) serves as producer.
