The Rhode Island Film & Television Office and the production team behind "Bleed For This," will begin a location search for the new feature film to be shot in the Ocean State.
"Bleed For This" is the comeback story of Rhode Island boxer Vinny Paz. Paz recovered from a near fatal car accident and went on to win three additional world boxing titles.
Executive producer for the film is Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese.
The group plans to make the announcements about the movie and its Rhode Island locations at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence on Wednesday.
