Amy Schumer eyeing biopic about boxing champ Christy MartinNewlywed Amy Schumer is in talks to portray real-life boxer Christy Martin in a hard-hitting new biopic.
With the success of biography dramas like I, Tonya (2017) and Battle of the Sexes (2017), we are entering, as it seems, an era of a female-led biopics about woman athletes from the past 4 decades.
The upcoming movie about the boxing champion Christy Martin will probably have Amy Schumer as the leading actress, but everything is still in the early stage of production, so there is no concrete evidence.
Christy Martin was an active professional boxer from 1989 until 2012, and not only her ring efforts are a movie material, but her life is just surreal as well.
She is the first woman that signed a deal with Don King. She also had the misfortune of marrying the killer. In 2010, her ex-husband and trainer James V. Martin stabbed her several times, and shot her, leaving her to die.
As soon as we find out more about this movie, we will let you know. Until then, check out the video above, and find out what is Amy Schumer up to these days!
