First-look photo of Miles Teller in Bleed For This

Bleed For This

Story by Jack Foley

A FIRST-look photo has just been released of Miles Teller in his new film, the boxing drama Bleed For This.

Directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room, Prime), and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the film is based on the incredible true story of one of boxing’s most charismatic and exciting figures, Vinny Pazienza (played by Teller), who quickly shot to stardom when he dominated undefeated champion Gilbert Dele.

A near-fatal automobile accident left him with the news that he would never walk again. But after months of recovery and against doctors’ orders, Vinny returned to the gym under infamous trainer, Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), and made a triumphant return to the ring just over a year later.

The Solution Entertainment Group is handling international rights to the project, which they are selling at the European Film Market.

Teller is currently starring in the Oscar-nominated film Whiplash and is also part of the Fantastic Four reboot, a first-look trailer for which has also just been released.
