Fulwell 73 to Produce Boxing Biopic ‘Benn v Eubank’

4 April 2017 8:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The legendary rivalry between controversial former British World Boxing champions Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn is set to live again in a new biopic about the pair, being produced by Fulwell 73.

Fulwell 73 announced Tuesday that it was set for “imminent production” on the new boxing biopic “Benn v Eubank,” which will chart the individual journeys of the two fierce rivals, who dominated British boxing in the late 1980s and early ’90s, their hatred of one another and the two matches (in 1990 and 1993) that came to define their careers.

“Benn and Eubank’s rivalry was palpable and defined an era,” says director Kieron Hawkes. “I watched the whole thing playout when I was a kid, and to now be involved in bringing it to life through cinema is completely thrilling. This film will be modern British cinema at its best: dangerous, relevant and necessary.”

As well as producing “The Late Late Show with James Corden »
