The War With Grandpa: Laura Marano And Oakes Fegley On Playing De Niro’s Grandkids [Exclusive Interview]

Laura Marano and Oakes Fegley play Robert De Niro’s grandkids in the new comedy, The War With Grandpa out this Friday, October 9th! 


Here’s the synopsis of the film:

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. However, 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. The friendly combatants engage 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.
