It was announced this week that Vivica A. Fox, Taryn Manning, Sally Kirkland and Tim Realbuto will star in the upcoming psychological boxing drama, Bobcat Moretti.
The movie is an interesting one. According to the reports, it’ll tell the story of an obese MS patient (Realbuto) who takes up his late father’s sport of boxing to overcome personal tragedy and find inner peace.
But get this, Realbuto is set to lose 100 pounds during filming, so this movie’s production period will be a year long.
Realbuto (Yes) penned the script with Margolies. Filming is set to begin this fall in LA and the production will span one year in order to give Realbuto time to lose the 100 pounds needed to portray the role.
Sounds like quite the challenge. Fox and Manning will also exec produce the project in addition to their starring roles.
Should be interesting to follow along with the production as Realbuto sheds the pounds.
