Argo star Alan Arkin is said to be in talks to join the upcoming Warner Bros. boxing comedy Grudge Match. Variety has the news, reporting that he would star opposite Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kevin Hart and the recently cast Kim Basinger.

Peter Segal, who last directed Get Smart, will direct the tale of two aging boxers (Stallone and De Niro) who plan one final match against one another. Basinger will star as the female lead, caught in the middle of the rivalry and Arkin would play the former trainer to Stallone's character.

Doug Ellin ("Entourage") wrote the latest draft with Bill Gerber, Carrie Gillogly and Mark Stephen Johnson producing.
