The first photos are out from “Raging Bull II”, Martin Guigui’s prequel/sequel to the Scorsese classic with Mojean Aria and William Forsythe in younger and older versions of the lead role respectively. Neither Scorsese or Robert De Niro are involved in the project in any way.
Tom Sizemore, Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino and Penelope Ann Miller star in the film which deals with boxer Jake LaMotta’s life “before the rage and after the rage”. LaMotta himself was present and providing guidance before and during the shoot. Currently in production in Los Angeles, the film opens sometime next year.
