'Foxcatcher' First Look: Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo as Olympic Wrestlers


The Bennett Miller-directed movie, based on true story of Mark and Dave Schultz, also stars Steve Carell as a paranoid schizophrenic man.

After the release of a Steve Carell picture, "Foxcatcher" unveils another image which now gives fans a first look at Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. In the Sony Pictures Classics flick, the "21 Jump Street" hunk and the "Now You See Me" star are introduced as real-life Olympic freestyle wrestlers Mark and Dave Schultz.

The image sees the two brothers seemingly giving support to one another. It is not clear why they share the tender moment, but something tragic will happen to one of them. Based on true story, the movie will tell how Dave got murdered by his paranoid schizophrenic friend, John duPont, who will be played by Steve Carell.

For his villain role, "Despicable Me" actor Carell sports a prosthetic nose which makes him look almost unrecognizable. The decision to cast the funnyman is indeed "unexpected," as director Bennett Miller admitted, but Miller had reason why Carell was the right man to do it.

"If I say I'm going to make a movie about a guy who's a schizophrenic murderer, there are probably a dozen actors who would immediately appear on anybody's casting list. And Steve would not be on any of those lists," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I just think there's a hell of a lot more to Steve than he tends to show."

Also starring Sienna Miller, "Foxcatcher" will have its world premiere at the AFI Fest on November 8 before storming U.S. theaters December 20.
