First look at boxing biopic ‘Giant’ with Amir El-Masry and Pierce Brosnan

Here’s your very first look at boxing biopic Giant about Prince Naseem ‘Naz’ Hamed. The feature, now in production, is based on the compelling true-life story of British-Yemeni pugilist Prince Naseem ‘Naz’ Hamed and his rags to riches ascent to a World Championship under the tutelage of his Irish-born boxing trainer Brendan Ingle. 

Amir El-Masry and Pierce Brosnan lead the cast as Naz and Ingle with the film written and directed by Rowan Athale (The Rise, Gangs of London, Strange But True).

The film is the true story of Hamed’s humble beginnings on the tough working-class streets of Sheffield and his discovery by?Ingle, himself a steel industry worker turned boxing trainer. Their unlikely partnership along with Naz’ unorthodox style, cocky persona, and sheer dominance in the ring, propelled them to the top of boxing’s elite and unprecedented levels of global superstardom, all in the face of the rampant Islamophobia and racism of 80’s and 90’s Britain.? 

More as is comes.
