Antoine Fuqua Closes Deal To Direct (boxing film) ‘Southpaw,’ Jake Gyllenhaal Set To Star

+

"Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) has chosen his next film. He will direct Southpaw, a drama set in the boxing world with Jake Gyllenhaal now set to star as welterweight champion who rises in his profession while his personal life falls apart. The picture, financed by The Weinstein Co., will start before the cameras this summer from a script by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, The Shield). Fuqua was looking at a number of different projects to helm but decided on Southpaw. His deal closed last night….This is a movie that could include some breakthrough performances as the script plays to cultural diversity."
