Hollywood legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are set to team up on the big screen in a new serial killer movie.

The two actors - who have three Academy Awards and 14 Oscar nominations between them - appeared together briefly in The Godfather, Part II and Heat, but only shared the screen fleetingly.

Righteous Kill, written by Russell Gewirtz and directed by John Avnet, will pair them up as police investigators hunting a serial killer.

Co-producer Avi Lerner says, "This is an event in world history. They were in two scenes in Heat. In this movie, they are in the whole thing together."

Filming is set to begin in Connecticut in August.
