Aaron Eckhart and Miles Teller are heading into the ring for a new boxing movie.

The actors are set to star in director Ben Younger's film Bleed For This, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will tell the true story of world champion boxer Vinny Pazienza (Miles), who made a miraculous recovery and comeback after a car crash left him not knowing whether he would even walk again.

Aaron will play his trainer Kevin Rooney, who helped him return to the sport.

Raging Bull director Martin Scorsese will be an executive producer on the project.
