*Imagine having your 8 year old child pitch you a movie idea based on a book they read… then that idea is then turned into a movie starring Robert De Niro, Oakes Fegley, Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Laura Marano and Jane Seymour!
It actually happened!
Tre Peart, or as De Niro calls him “his boss” is that child! His parents Marvin Peart (Brookdale Studios) and Rosa Peart (Marro Media Company) financed and produced the comedy film, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA, along with their son. The film is in theaters on October 9, 2020 and you can check out the trailer above.
Imagine. Marvin, Rosa and their son Tre independently financed the film, which will be one of the first family films to go into theaters this Fall following the pandemic. Yes, Imagine that.

SYNOPSIS | Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes Fegley) is pretty much your average kid-he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed (Robert De Niro) moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.
Based on the award-winning book by Robert Kimmel Smith, The War with Grandpa is a hilarious family comedy featuring an all-star supporting cast: Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Laura Marano and Jane Seymour.
