It’s just been announced that actor Jeremy Renner will be stepping into the ring to play heavyweight boxer Rocky Marciano in the new biopic “Undefeated: The Rocky Marciano Story”. The boxer is known for retiring from his professional career undefeated, with 49 wins. He was also the biggest inspiration for fictional character Rocky Balboa throughout the movies.
Renner has starred in a series of action movies recently, most prominently Mission: Impossible, the Bourne franchise and, of course, his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s safe to say that he can handle a fight scene. He also bears a resemblance to the boxer.
The script was written by Samuel Franco and Evan Kilgore, and will follow the boxer’s life from childhood until his dramatic death in a plane crash. The film is still in its early development stages, and a director is yet to be defined. A release date also hasn’t been announced.
A place to discuss upcming movies.
