No date yet for The Fighter

The true story about junior welterweight boxer Micky Ward, is in post production and found the sometime prickly David O.Russell ( Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees ) directing the film with Mark Wahlberg as Ward and Christian Bale as his trainer/brother Dicky Eklund. As you can see by the photo, Bale went for another method weight loss in the role.
Rounding out the cast is Amy Adams as Ward's bartender girlfriend, Melissa Leo as the pair's mother, and Allison Folland as Ward's ex girlfriend. There has been no release date set for this hush,hush production.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
