Peter Segal Lines Up A “Grudge Match”

Peter Segal (“Get Smart”) has set the boxing movie “Grudge Match” at Warner Bros. Pictures as his next project reports Deadline.

The story follows two retired boxers approaching their 70’s who are lured back into the ring for a rematch fifty years after their first title fight.

Tim Kelleher penned the script while Mark Steven Johnson and Bill Gerber are producing. Segal’s involvement means the long delayed sequel to 2008’s “Get Smart” will likely be delayed again.
