RAGING BULL 2 Lawsuit Forces Title Change to THE BRONX BULL

Sad news for those of you who were looking forward to seeing Raging Bull 2: it’s still in development, but has changed its title to The Bronx Bull.  A lawsuit filed by MGM claimed the right of first refusal of a sequel by the studio, as they owned both Jake LaMotta’s life rights and the feature rights tied to Martin Scorsese’s original film.  The title change reflects LaMotta’s nickname and the producers will publicly dissociate their project from Scorsese’s picture and MGM studios.

The Martin Guigui (Beneath the Darkness) picture stars William Forsythe (Boardwalk Empire) as an older LaMotta with Mojean Aria (Cross Life) as a younger version.  The picture also stars Tom Sizemore (Heat), Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas) and Penelope Ann Miller (The Artist).  The title change notice comes via THR.

Robert De Niro says one of his buzzed about sequels is progressing, while he wasn’t aware of another that has long been rumored.  At a Tribeca Film Festival panel with the Oscar-winning actor & award winning writer/director/producer Judd Apatow to mark the 100th anniversary of Universal Pictures, De Niro talked about follow-ups to the studio’s 1988 hit comedy Midnight Run and the film which won him a Best Actor Oscar, Raging Bull.
