The Weinstein Company has picked up U.S. distribution rights to “Hands of Stone,” the drama starring Edgar Ramirez as iconic boxer Robert Duran and Robert De Niro as his trainer, Ray Arcel.

Both Relativity and TWC were bidding for the film. TWC has committed to 2,000 U.S. screens. The studio had already bought foreign rights to the pic a few months back.

Directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and written by Jonathan Jakubowicz, the movie is based on the true story of legendary boxer Duran, who rose from the slums of Panama to become one of the great fighter of his time. His rivalry with Sugar Ray Leonard (portrayed by Usher in the film) is considered one of the fiercest in boxing history. He was nicknamed “hands of stone” because his hard hits led to 103 wins in 119 fights.

Ellen Barkin, Ruben Blades and Ana de Armas also star.

Hands of Stone” is produced by Jay Weisleder, »
