The glittering lights of Hollywood are sparkling in Covington this week.
Robert DeNiro and film crews are in town this week using our fair city as backdrop for scenes in the Barry Levinson-directed film Wise Guys.
A variety of locations around town will stand in for the 1957 tale of feuding mob family patriarchs Frank Costello and Vito Genovese, according to IMDB.com.
The Oscar winner takes his roles seriously, and Wise Guys will likely be no exception. In preparation for his role in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather Part II, De Niro spent four months in Sicily learning the regional dialect to prepare for his turn as the young Vito Corleone.
