EXCLUSIVE: Kathrine Narducci will be working again, not just with Robert De Niro, but also filmmaker Barry Levinson, in the latter’s mob pic Wise Guys at Warner Bros.
Wise Guys is a period piece that follows the story of Vito Genovese and Frank Costello, a pair of Italian Americans running two separate crime families during the mid-20th century. Genovese tried and failed to assassinate Costello in 1957, though the latter wound up taking his leave from the mob after being injured during the attempt on his life. De Niro is reportedly playing both roles. Narducci will play Anna Genovese who is the wife of De Niro’s Vito character. Deadline first told you that Debra Messing is in talks to play Bobbie, the wife of De Niro’s Costello character.

Other notable credits include staring alongside Tom Hardy in the film Capone directed by Josh Trank and in the Emmy winning movie Bad Education directed by Cory Finley starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janey. Most recently, Narducci can be seen starring alongside Emily Ratajkowski in Cruise directed by Rob Siegel and in American Dresser opposite Bruce Dern.
