Ramin Setoodeh Cannes: Bruce Willis to Play Mike Tyson's Boxing Trainer in 'Cornerman'

The Die Hard star will play Cus D'Amato in Cornerman, which will center on the legendary trainer's father-son relationship with the troubled young fighter, who he discovered at the age of 13 in NY in the 1980s.

Cornerman has been announced at the Cannes Film Festival (via THR), set to solicit foreign sales this week, with Bruce Willis touted as its headliner to play the famous boxing manager and trainer, Constantine "Cus" D'Amato.

We remind you that the coach of the Casa D Amata for a long time lived and trained athletes in NY until he left the city due to the fact that it pushed the local sports mafia. Now, along his long-time partner Camille, he runs a small gym where he and his trainers, including lithe former street-brawler Teddy Atlas, coach young contenders. But the backer of the gym is pressuring D'Amato to find a real competitor and to secure his professional legacy. Seeing the kid's potential, D'Amato takes him in, determined to turn the mercurial hothead into the youngest-ever heavyweight world champion. It tells the story of how D'Amato went from training some of boxing's biggest champions, to finding a 13-year-old Tyson.

"Homeland" actor Rupert Friend has been picked to make his directorial debut with the boxing drama. Friend and Aimée Mullins are producing for Circus Florist Films with Marc Butan and Ara Keshishian producing for MadRiver Pictures.

Cornerman will begin shooting in the fall.

In a statement, Friend described the film as about "a deep love between two ferocious talents". "It is a story about fighting for what you believe in, and a film that will make you question what strength really is". Among his students were such legendary boxers as Mike Tyson, Floyd Patterson and Jose Torres.
