We’ve got a couple of casting announcements to attend to this evening. First up, The Wrap reports that Forest Whitaker is in talks to star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in director Antoine Fuqua’s (Training Day) boxing drama Southpaw. The story revolves around a left-handed boxer who wins a title but suffers various tragedies in his personal life, all while trying to win back the love of his daughter. Gyllenhaal plays the titular fighter, while Whitaker will fill the other lead as a former fighter who now works as a trainer. The script was penned by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and at one point had Eminem attached to star. Production begins this summer.
