Alda in ‘Champ’ camp

Lurie-helmed drama lenses in Canada in June

Alan Alda has joined Josh Hartnett, Samuel L. Jackson, Kathryn Morris and Rachel Nichols in “Resurrecting the Champ,” the Rod Lurie-directed drama that shoots in Canada in June.

The Yari Film Group arranged financing on the pic, produced by Bob Yari; Phoenix’s Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer and Brad Fischer; and Marc Frydman.

Fact-based story concerns an L.A. Times reporter who wrote about a homeless man who was once a famed fighter, then found the pugilist wasn’t who he claimed to be. By then, the journo and his subject had formed a father-son bond.

Alda was last seen on the bigscreen in “The Aviator.”
