Blake Nelson is directing Vincent Grashaw’s boxing drama
Tim Blake Nelson (Oh brother where are you, The incredible Hulk) is ready to deploy its dukes Bang bangan upcoming boxing drama from director Vincent Grashaw (bluebell, What Josiah saw). Written by Will Janowitz (The sopranos) follows Bernard “Bang Bang” Rozyski (Nelson), a disgruntled retired boxer who has to take care of his grandson. While making ends meet, Bernard has a chance to settle an old grudge, but he must show his relatives the ropes to swing like a butterfly and sting like a bee.
I join Nelson for Grashaw’s hard-hitting drama are Glenn Plummer (Threat II society, south central), Andreas Liner (Vampire Academy, better things), Erica Gimple (Fame, god made me friends), Nina Arianda (Be the Ricardos, Midnight in Paris), Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Dominion, the Vampire Diaries) and Kevin Corrigan (True romance, the deceased).
“This project affects me personally the most. I grew up loving boxing, but the script explored elements I had never seen in a film before; the aftermath of a troubled fighter’s career” said Grasaw. “I found it to be an incredibly moving, tragic story, but also extremely funny. Tim Blake Nelson blew me away in the role and I can’t wait to share it with an audience.”
Meanwhile, Nelson enjoys the challenge through Bang bangand participation is, in his opinion, an intelligent film. “This role presents me with challenges that I didn’t have as an actor.” Nelson confessed “But more importantly, it’s part of a hell of a smart and surprising script, enacted by an excellent storyteller in Vincent Grashaw.”
Ran Namerode and Angelia Adzic are producing through Randomix Productions with Traverse Media’s Cole Payne, Grashaw and Janowitz. Jesse Ozeri, Dane Eckerle and Nicolaas Bertelsen serve as executive producers.
“Vince is gifted with unique skills and we’ve assembled an amazing team around him, from a great writer to an amazing cast to a great crew and production team.” added name rode, “And we are all convinced of that Bang bang will really touch people’s hearts.”
Nelson is an incredibly versatile actor whose transformative habits should define his role Bang bang something worth getting in the ring for. Boxing dramas are a dime a dozen in Hollywood. However, the thumbnail for Bang bang (shown above) already makes this film feel like a gut punch to the senses. Ding Ding!
