Robert De Niro looks set to play a professor in a new Italian romance.

The Hollywood heavyweight, who will next be seen in Robert Rodriguez' action adventure Machete, is in negotiations about signing up for the third Manual Of Love film, reports Variety.

The 67-year-old Oscar-winner - who has Italian roots - would play a divorced professor living in Rome in one of the sections of the film, which is the third instalment in the Manual Of Love romance franchise.

The industry magazine says De Niro's role will be partly spoken in Italian. It wouldn't be the first time the star has tackled the language on the silver screen - he was seen speaking in Italian in The Godfather Part II.

The film is set to start shooting next month.
