Idol's Eye staring Robert De Niro to film in Chicago Here's a final item out of the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival, this one a Chicago crime story to be told by a highly regarded French director. Earlier this year Robert Pattinson of the "Twilight" franchise began talking about playing the lead in the forthcoming true-crime drama "Idol's Eye," to be filmed here and in Toronto beginning in the fall. Based on Hillel Levin's 2007 Playboy feature "Boosting the Big Tuna," it's about the grisly murders of a group of burglars who, in 1978, made the fatal mistake of stealing a 70-carat diamond from organized crime kingpin Tony "Big Tuna" Accardo.
