Liev Schreiber Playing the Real Life Rocky Balboa in Chuck Trailer

Anything combing the phrase “real life Rocky Balboa” and the name “Liev Schreiber” has got my attention.   If you know your Rocky trivia you’ll know that a fighter by the name of Chuck Wepner went 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali which inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the movie Rocky.   Even though Stallone would later go on to deny it, come on.  Look at the character Apollo Creed and look at Muhammad Ali.   The entire premise of Rocky is him wanting to go the distance with the champ which was coincidentally 15 rounds.

Liev Schreiber takes on the lead role in Chuck which follows Wepner through his epic life of drugs, booze, wild women, incredible highs and extraordinary lows. The film debuted at TIFF 2016 as The Bledder, and now IFC Films have released the first trailer for the upcoming sports biopic.

Here’s the official synopsis for Chuck

Chuck is the true story of Chuck Wepner, the man who inspired the billion-dollar film series Rocky–a liquor salesman from New Jersey who went 15 rounds with the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali. In his ten years in the ring, Wepner endured two knockouts, eight broken noses, and 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: an epic life of drugs, booze, wild women, incredible highs and extraordinary lows.
