A new synopsis for Southpaw, Jake’s new film about to be shot in Pennsylvania, has been released:
“Cocky, aggressive, volatile middleweight champion Billy Hope (Mr. Gyllenhaal) fully expects to ride out his career with his massive winnings, adoring fans, beloved wife, Maureen, and their 10-year-old daughter, Leila.
When Billy’s temper triggers a fight and then a shootout that leaves Maureen dead, Billy finds his life spiraling out of control. After he loses his house, money and then, Leila, to a group foster home, he begins to find his way back to some kind of balance with the help of amateur trainer Titus “Tick” Willis.
Tick has his own demons but he proves to be the perfect trainer to make Billy a better fighter, man and father. Forest Whitaker has been rumored for Tick but no casting for the role has been confirmed.”
Remember that you can still try to be an extra.
Last but not least, not sure if this is a new interview (I doubt it) but if there’s someone out there willing to translate from Dutch they’re welcome to share. Thank you!
I kind of like this caricature.
