Ben Younger, who wrote and directed 2000’s Boiler Room and 2005’s Prime, will write and direct Bleed for This.

“You know, Miles Teller, the hottest actor in Hollywood, playing Vinnie Paz, the greatest comeback story in sports history, and Martin Scorsese’s name attached doesn’t hurt,” said the movie co-producer Chad Verdi, from Verdi Productions in East Greenwich.

Bleed for This will be executive produced by Martin Scorsese. The movie is produced by Verdi Productions and stars, Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Kevin Rooney, Katey Sagal, and Ciaran Hinds.

Miles Teller, who stars in comedy That Awkward Moment and Divergent also stars in Whiplash, which won the top prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month. His upcoming projects include comedy Two Night Stand. Aaron Eckhart most recently starred in I, Frankenstein and Olympus has Fallen. His upcoming projects include thriller Incarnate.

Verdi Productions said if anyone is turned away due to capacity “you will be guaranteed another extra spot in the film in the fight scene at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.”
