Latest Norton film pits him with 2 heavyweights

SHARE Latest Norton film pits him with 2 heavyweights

Actor Ed Norton may have stolen the show from his "Fight Club" co-star Brad Pitt but Norton's latest film pits him against Hollywood heavyweights Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro.

"Let's be honest," Norton told New York's Daily New in an interview Sunday. "Here's a movie with Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando and I'm just going to go and do it for all the obvious reasons, to work with those guys. But beyond that, tweaked the right way, I thought this could be a classic genre movie."

The Yale-educated Norton has already won a Golden Globe for "Primal Fear" and seven other awards for his last seven features. His latest film, "The Score," follows in the tradition of De Niro's 1995 film "Heat" and the 1951 British comedy crime "Lavender Hill Mob."
