Naomie Harris to Star in new Boxing DramaMarc Ehrenbold
Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be going into the ring alone for his upcoming boxing drama Southpaw, as last week, Naomie Harris and Beau Knapp both joined the Antoine Fuqua-directed film. The story is about a welterweight champ whose career soars as his personal life falls apart. Naomie will play the role as Angela, a social worker who works with Gyllenhaal’s character and his daughter.
Rachel Mcadams will play Billy’s wife with Forest Whitaker on board as former fighting champion Totus Tick Willis. The drama was originally developed as a sequel to 8 Mile with Eminem playing the star role.
Antoine Fuqua is set to direct the film for the Weinstein Company with scripts by Sons of Anarchy show runner, Kurt Sutter.
Also in the cast are Forest Whitaker, playing the fighter’s mentor, a former boxer himself, and Rachel McAdams, taking on the part of a love interest for Gyllenhaal’s protagonist. According to IMDb, smaller roles have been filled by Victor Ortiz, Miguel Gomez, 50 Cent and Clare Foley.
Naomie recently wrapped filming on director Susanna White’s Our Kind Of Traitor opposite Ewan McGregor and returns to the 007 franchise to reprise her role as Eve Moneypenny in the upcoming Bond 24.
