Bell & Mara Are “Fighting Jacob”

Jamie Bell and Kate Mara are attached to star in the quirky indie rom-com “Fighting Jacob” for The Schiff Co. and Fade to Black Films says Variety.

Bell will play the title role of an up-and-coming boxer whose extreme OCD is the key to his success in the ring. After a devastating breakup, he’s forced to evaluate his many neuroses and whether he can be truly happy while still being a fighter.

Charlie McDowell will direct from a script by Justin Lader and shooting kicks off this summer in Los Angeles. McDowell, Kenny Goodman, Oren Kamara and Gary Ousdahl will produce.
