Robert De Niro may be old and gray-beard, but he can still throw a hook with the best of them. Check out a new clip from Gary McKendry’s throwback action flick “Killer Elite”, which shows De Niro in action against a young tough guy trying to ambush him. That’ll teach’em. The film opens everywhere this Friday, September 23, 2011.

Based on a true story, Killer Elite races across the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East in the action-packed account of an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).

Also starring Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Yvonne Strahovski, Dominic Purcell, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Grant Bowler, Michael Dorman, and Ben Mendelsohn.
