Bronx Bull trailer: Jake LaMotta returns to the ring in unofficial Raging Bull sequel
Jake LaMotta is swinging his way back to the big screen, but not with Robert De Niro wearing his gloves.
A new trailer for The Bronx Bull — an unofficial sequel to Raging Bull that isn’t affiliated with Martin Scorsese’s 1980 classic — has arrived online, depicting the legendary boxing champion’s rise to fame and struggles with life outside of the ring.
Bronx Bull stars William Forsythe as LaMotta, with Paul Sorvino, Tom Sizemore, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Cloris Leachman, and Harry Hamlin also among the film’s cast.
Originally known as Raging Bull II, The Bronx Bull changed its title following a 2012 lawsuit by MGM that attempted to shut down production on the film. The studio said in a statement at the time that the new film “is not related in any way” to the original Raging Bull.
The Bronx Bull will be released in January. Watch the trailer above.
