EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — It will be another year before Rhode Islanders will be able to see a local boxing legend’s story up on the silver screen.
“Bleed For This” tells the story of Vinny Paz. Its release has been pushed back until late 2016. It was originally slated to hit theaters late this year, or early next.
Chad Verdi, the film’s producer, says delaying the film’s release will help it avoid competing with two other boxing movies. “Creed” starring Sylvester Stallone debuts November 25. Robert De Niro’s “Hands of Stone” will also be released sometime in 2016.
