De Niro Battles Film Insurer over Delays Due to Illness


Robert De Niro, Hollywood 'heavyweight', is battling insurer Fireman's Fund Insurance Company over delays in the film "Hide and Seek" due to his diagnosis of prostate cancer four years ago. De Niro wants a dismissal of the $1.8 million lawsuit.

The insurer stated that the film makers want reimbursement for delays in the production of the film slating De Niro 'misrepresented' his health status before filming began. During the delays Mr De Niro was having cancer treatment.

De Niro, 63, is in turn being sued for fraud for not disclosing his illness when signing a health certificate three days before getting a biopsy. He stated he was being truthful because he was not diagnosed or treated before signing.
