Boxing Bio, BLEED FOR THIS, Lands A November Release From Open Road
Writer and director Ben Younger has a treat for you if you’re pining for a little boxing to wash your Thanksgiving dinner later this year with the new bio drama, Bleed For This. Miles Teller leads the film inspired by a true story, and one that apparently even has Martin Scorsese attached as an executive producer, so that should be pleasing for boxing aficionados looking forward to some cinema by then.
BLEED FOR THIS is the incredible true story of one of the most inspiring and unlikely comebacks in sports history. Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent) stars as Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza, a local Providence boxer who shot to stardom after winning two world title fights. After a near-fatal car accident leaves Vinny with a severed spine, doctors tell him he may never walk again. With the help of renowned trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), Vinny becomes a legend when he not only walks again, but miraculously returns to the ring to reclaim his title belt only a year after the accident.
Also starring are actress Katey Seagal, Ted Levine, Ciarán Hinds, Jordan Gelber and Amamda Clayton. Open Road Films has set a limited theatrical date for November 4 followed by a wider release on November 23.
Stay tuned for some teaser goodies and much more!
