One of the greatest movies ever made is Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull; watching it is an experience everyone should have in their lifetime. So enter Martin Guigui with the nerve to try and taint Raging Bull’s legacy with some strange sequel, prequel, or remake – I can’t tell. His IMDB bio was likely written by himself or a friend and his list of credits include the National Lampoon movie Cattle Call. The Bronx Bull was once titled Raging Bull II; I wish I was making that up.
He somehow managed to line up a pretty good cast including William Forsythe, Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Penelope Ann Miller, and Natasha Henstridge for this low budget Jake LaMotta story. The Bronx Bull has no release date and this will probably be the last time I mention the movie.
Enjoy the trailer though!
The Internet Movie Database says it’s real, Variety says it’s real – but I don’t want to believe it. Raging Bull II is being directed by Martin Guigui, who seems to works with a lot of talent in movies that seem to disappear overnight (Beneath the Darkness, Changing Hearts). It’s a prequel/sequel to Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece Raging Bull, that’s a lot to live up to, I mean you wouldn’t make a sequel to Citizen Kane would you?
The film stars William Forsythe as the older Jake LaMotta, and Mojean Aria who plays the younger version of LaMotta (scenes that take place before Scorsese’s film). Forsythe is awesome and for me was memorable recently as Manny on Boardwalk Empire.
I don’t know what this movie will be or what kind of release it thinks it’s going to get, but they have me curious I’ll say that much.
