Michael Pena is set to join Clint Eastwood, Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman in “Million Dollar Baby” for Warner Bros.
Eastwood will helm “Baby,” a Malpaso production — in association with Lakeshore and Al Ruddy Prods. Script is based on two short stories from the collection “Rope Burn” by F.X. Toole.
Story concerns a fighter-turned-trainer in her early 30s who is determined to forge a boxing career.
Production is slated to start in June in Los Angeles.
Pena will next be seen in “Lords of Dogtown.”
