After completely some extensive work on his own, Robert De Niro was joined on location by his curvy co-star Monica Belluci in Rome, Italy on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010. They are working on their latest project entitled, Manual of Love 3, the third and final film in the Giovanni Veronesi series.
While most people would be quite pleased to have a screen legend like Robert De Niro shooting in their neighborhood, it seems that the people of Rome are being inconvenienced by large disruption it is causing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Italian press is calling all the complaints a “revolt.” Things have gotten so bad that police officers had to be called in to cover the area and keep the complaints at bay.
I guess I could relate, when Bad Boys 2 shot here in Miami people were so angry when a major highway had to be shut down during rush hour traffic. So De Niro or no De Niro, it might be inconveniencing people who are just trying to get to work.
Mr. De Niro is playing the role of an American professor who falls in love with his colleague played by the beautiful Bellucci.
