Eckhart, Teller To “Bleed for This”

Aaron Eckhart and Miles Teller are attached to star in “Boiler Room” filmmaker Ben Younger’s “Bleed for This,” a biopic about world champion boxer Vinny Pazienza.

Teller would play Pazienza who suffered a near fatal car crash which left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again.

After months of recovery and against doctors’ orders, he returned to the gym under infamous trainer Kevin Rooney (Eckhart) and made a return to the ring just over a year later.

Younger, Bruce Cohen, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Chad Verdi and Noah Kraft are producing, while Martin Scorsese is executive producing.
