First Images from the Set of Bennett Miller’s FOXCATCHER Featuring Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum

     December 13, 2012


Director Bennett Miller’s Moneyball was one of the best films of 2011, so it’s with great anticipation that we look toward his follow-up feature, the real-life drama Foxcatcher.  The pic tells the true story of John du Pont, a paranoid schizophrenic who built a wrestling training facility on his 800-acre Pennsylvania estate where he subsequently shot and killed Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler David Schultz in 1996. Heir to his family’s chemical fortune, du Pont locked himself in his mansion for two days after murdering his friend, and spent the time on the phone with negotiators.

Miller has assembled a fantastic ensemble cast that includes Steve Carell as du Pont, Mark Ruffalo as Schultz, and Channing Tatum as Schultz’s brother.  Some set photos have surfaced today that feature a nearly unrecognizable Ruffalo as the Olympian alongside a very in-shape Tatum.  Hit the jump to take a look at the images.  Foxcatcher is set to hit theaters sometime next fall. [Update: We've removed the unofficial images.]
