Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts and Christina Hendricks get in the boxing ring for The Bleeder

05.11.2011

Liev Schreiber has been itching to tie on the boxing gloves, and with THE FIGHTER proving to be a box office knockout, now he's getting his chance.

Schreiber will get his head smashed in THE BLEEDER, playing real-life boxer Chuck Wepner in a biopic the actor previously described as "just a remarkable, hilarious film."

Wepner (aka "The Bayonne Bleeder") is a New Jersey boxer best known for nearly going the distance in a 1975 fight with Muhammed Ali and later brawling in the ring with Andre the Giant (who chucked him out of it). The underdog was the inspiration for Stallone to make ROCKY (which also obviously bled into ROCKY III's clash with "Thunder Lips").

The movie will be directed by Jeff Feuerzeig (THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON), and Schreiber will be joined on screen by his IRL wife Naomi Watts and the unlimited cleavage of Christina Hendricks.

Seriously, everytime I see that picture I laugh. Those things are ridiculous and she not only take pride in them, but props them up like a couple of pom poms. It makes her head look kinda tiny in comparison.

Movie sounds like it could be interesting. They'll have to hide those sweater puppies though, lest they steal the thunder and screen space from the rest of the actors.

cool this guy's getting some recognition

but I think they should lay off the boxing/fighting movies for a while.

Make this one in 2 or 3 years or something... if this hits theatres next year or something, as much as I dig Liev--PASS

Awesome! I was wondering if someone was going to make a movie about Chuck Wepner at some point...it's a great story and should be told. Rocky borrowed from it, but obviously that's very much its own thing. It'll be nice to have the actual Chuck Wepner story, his fight against Ali, etc. Liev Schreiber is an amazing actor and I think he'll do a phenomenal job.
