Teller, Eckhart to star in Vinny Paz movie

Actors Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart will play the lead roles in a film about world champion boxer Vinny Paz.

East Greenwich-based Verdi Productions President and CEO Chad Verdi said Monday that Teller will play Paz in "Bleed for This" while Eckhart will play his trainer, Kevin Rooney.

Verdi bought the rights in 2009 to make the movie about Paz, the boxing champion who overcame a broken neck suffered in a car accident to again fight for a world title.

Director Martin Scorsese is an executive producer on the project.
