Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber and Christina Hendricks will star in boxing drama The Bleeder, to be directed by Jeff Feuerzeig, reports Variety.

The Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park International project is “based on the true story of former New Jersey heavyweight boxer and womanizer Chuck Wepner who boxed 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali and inspired Sylvester Stallone to pen ‘Rocky.'”

Feuerzeig, who directed The Devil and Daniel Johnston, co-wrote the script with Jerry Stahl.
