We’ve got our hands on a preview clip of Chuck (aka The Bleeder), the upcoming boxing drama movie directed by Philippe Falardeau and starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Jim Gaffigan, Pooch Hall, and Morgan Spector:
Chuck – Wife
“The true story of Chuck Wepner, the man who inspired the billion-dollar film series ‘Rocky’—a liquor salesman from New Jersey who went 15 rounds with the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammed Ali. In his ten years in the ring, Wepner endured two knockouts, 8 broken noses, 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: an epic life of drugs, booze, wild women, incredible highs and extraordinary lows.”
Doesn’t sound like Chuck was a nice chap… I guess fighting on the ring was his way of doing penance…
The movie Chuck is set to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
