In East New York, the Judah Brother’s Boxing Gym will star as a Made-In-NY Production Location in the movie BARE KNUCKLE – STORY OF A B’KLYN FIGHTER – a film that will be entirely made in Brooklyn.
Bare Knuckle is a wonderful, triumphant story of a boxer who takes on the fight of his life to win his daughter back through struggles, triumph and the power of love.
Announcing the movie BARE KNUCKLE, directed by Rick Mowat, written by up-and-coming screenwriter David Tianga (HYPE). IdeaBlizzard and SnackPack Productions are producing the film that will star New Yorkers Zach McGowan (Michael Bay’s Black Sails, Shameless) as the lead, and Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 123, Anger Management, Carlito’s Way, Enemy Way).
Screen icon and former boxer Danny Trejo (Grindhouse, Heat, Con Air, From Dusk Til Dawn) is in final negotiations to star.
