True-life boxing drama Bleed For This already has Miles Teller attached as slugger Vinny Pazienza. Now we know who will be playing his father, Angelo, because Ciaran Hinds has signed on to co-star{ =nofollow}.

Boiler Room writer-director Ben Younger is scripting and directing this one, charting the story of Pazienza, who broke his neck in three places in a traffic accident in 1991 while he was at the peak of his career. Against doctors’ orders, Pazienza returned to the gym with his neck still encased in a metal halo, began working out and eventually won three more titles. He went on to retire with a 50-10 record.

While Hinds worries about his onscreen son’s condition, Aaron Eckhart will be Pazienza’s trainer, Kevin Rooney, an infamous name in the boxing community of the time who pushes him to recover.

Hinds, who recently appeared in a recurring role as Mance Rayder on Game Of Thrones, will be back on the big screen in The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, which has yet to secure a UK release date and Hitman: Agent 47, the reboot of the console game series adaptation, due in cinemas on March 20 next year.
