Entertainment Weekly has exclusively released the first trailer for the upcoming Vinny Pazienza biopic Bleed For This starring Miles Teller in the lead role.
Miles Teller plays Vinny Pazienza, nicknamed The Pazmanian Devil, a boxer that would go on to be a five-time world boxing champion. The synopsis for the film is as follows:
Bleed For This tells the true story of the Rhode Island brawler at a stage when he tragically lost almost everything as he reached the pinnacle of his profession and how he defied medical science and common sense to return to the ring and win another championship belt.
The film focuses on Vinny spending over a year attempting to return to the ring, defying his doctors, friend and family after a car accident leaves him with a broken neck and the possibility of never being able to walk again. Finally we get are first look at Bleed For This and I most say so far it has hooked me in with the story and what stage of Pazienza’s career its focusing on and I find it interesting that its being released during award season. The film is directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room, Prime) and also stars Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Aaron Eckhart, Ted Levine, Kimberly Howe and Amanda Clayton.
Bleed For This is scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th November (Limited) and the 23rd November (Nationwide).
