The Fighter is a new film based on a true story and revolves around the life of professional Irish boxer “Irish” Micky Ward (Wahlberg) and his trainer-brother Dick Eklund (Bale).
It will chronicle their early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass., through Eklund’s battle with drugs and Ward’s eventual world championship in London.
Amy Adams is portraying Charlene, a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper from Massachusetts who ends up dating Ward.
Director Darren Aronofsky was originally touted to helm the project, but when it was stalled he left the project. Later, David O. Russell takes over the directorial job for this drama which is expected to be released in US on 10th December.
