Sam Rockwell is reuniting with “A Single Shot” director David M Rosenthal for an untitled biopic about boxer Billy Miske, according to Screen Daily.

“He’s been wanting to do a boxing movie forever, I’ve wanted to do a boxing film,” Rosenthal said.

“We stumbled upon a story about a legendary folk hero boxer from the 1920 Billy Miske, a journeyman boxer,” Rosenthal told Screen. “In his prime he’s diagnosed with a fatal disease. Instead of giving up and walking away he decides to tell no one and keep boxing even though he’s withering away. It’s an incredible story.”

Rosenthal, who optioned Clay Moyle’s book ‘Billy Miske: The Saint Paul Thunderbolt’, hopes this will be his next film.

Michael Costigan will produce the film, which is now out to writers.
