From Yahoo News:
It’s not the first time Rourke has expressed his anger toward De Niro, with whom he co-starred in Alan Parker’s 1987 film Angel Heart. Just last year, Rourke told an Italian TV show that De Niro blocked him from getting a part in Martin Scorsese’s 2019 epic crime drama The Irishman, which chronicled the life of former hitman Frank Sheeran.
“Marty Scorsese wanted to meet me for a movie with Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro,” Rourke revealed to Live – Non è la D’Urso, the Independent reported at the time. “The casting person told my manager that Robert De Niro said he refused to work with me in a movie.”
Losing the role greatly “upset” Rourke, because he needed the money at the time, he added. But he also “looked up” to De Niro until they had a negative interaction on the Angel Heart set. Rourke, who played a private detective contracted by De Niro’s character to track down a famous singer, claimed De Niro told him back then that “I think it’s better if we don’t talk.”

De Niro has done a good job of embarrassing himself in the media without Rourke’s help.
He often angrily lashes out at the President and his supporters. The out-of-touch Hollywood A-Lister even said he will be “lucky” to make $7.5 million this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Oh, if we could all be so lucky!
This battle doesn’t appear to be going away soon. Mickey Rourke isn’t one to back down and he publicly put this threat out there to embarrass De Niro.
This might just be the entertainment we need during the pandemic!
