Liev Schreiber has filmed an upcoming boxing movie titled The Bleeder and you can check out a first look at the movie above. The film is a biographical account of Chuck Wepner’s challenge to Muhammad Ali in 1975. Pooch Hall will play the latter.
The film was directed by Philippe Falardeau and was screened recently in Venice.
Although a release date still hasn’t been set, IFC Films and Showtime Networks acquired U.S distribution rights to the film. In the movie, Schreiber supposedly took more than 800 real punches to ensure the movie’s authentic look and feel worked out.
So that’s something he should be respected for.
