Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts and Christina Hendricks have been confirmed to star in the upcoming boxing drama ‘The Bleeder’ directed by Jeff Feuerzeig.

Live Schreiber, Christina Hendricks and Naomi Watts have been reportedly confirmed and signed to star in the real story based boxing drama ‘The Bleeder’. The story is based on the true story of Chuck Wepner, a New Jersey Heavyweight boxer.

The fight between Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner has inspired Sylvester Stallone to make the series of movies ‘Rocky’. In 1975, Wepner challenged Muhammad Ali, where Ali was paid $1.5 million, while Wepner was paid $1 million, which was considered, as more than he earned in his life. The fight was held on March 24 at Richfield Coliseum at Cleveland.

In the ninth round of the bout, Wepner almost knocked down Ali. But Ali said that, Wepner stepped on his feet. In later rounds, Ali did not give Chuck a single chance to attack and in return he ousted him, with his both eyes cut and breaking the nose. Just 15 seconds was left in 15th round, by the time Chuck was knocked down by Ali.

The project is produced by Vijay Amritraj’s Hyde Park International with Mike Tollin and Carl Hampe as producers and Vijay Amritraj and Matty Beckerman as executive producers. The script has been provided by Jeff Feuerzeig and Jerry Stahl. Jeff, who won the Sundance Award in 2005 for directing a documentary ‘The Devil and Daniel Johnston’, will direct the movie.

The filming of ‘The Bleeder’ has not been scheduled yet.
