Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal is desperate to start work on a planned Roberto Duran biopic - because he has been in training for months to play the Panamanian boxing great.
The film and Bernal's casting was announced two years ago, but the project has yet to start shooting and The Motorcycle Diaries star has his fingers crossed that all his hard work isn't a waste of time.
He tells WENN, "I'm still preparing for the boxing movie Hands of Stone, which I hope starts shooting soon.
"I've been going to the gym every day, which is the reason why I can hardly lift my hands. It hurts, so I hope it (movie) gets made."
