The 2014 box office has not been kind so far to Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart. Teller’s That Awkward Moment had a disappointing opening this past weekend, while Eckhart’s I, Frankenstein completely bombed the week before that. But perhaps they’ll fare better when they join forces, with a bit of help from executive producer Martin Scorsese.
The pair are attached to star in Bleed for This, a biopic of boxer Vinny Pazienza being written and directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room, Prime). Teller will star as the athlete, while Eckhart will play his trainer. Learn more about Pazienza’s remarkable story after the jump.
