You can't tell me that's not what he had in mind when he signed up for this movie, right? Playing real life boxer Vinny Paz, who on top of the boxing thing, actually got into a life threatening injury from a car accident, was told he'd never walk again, and came back from that to ultimate victory? Sounds like all the requisite cliches are in there, that's for sure. And Martin Scorsese produces it too. I don't think Miles Teller has enough good will from other actors, but if he's that good in this, I guess it could happen. He's made it clear in interviews he wants it badly enough. We'll see when this comes out in November.
