Amy Adams joins Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in The Fighter

Amy Adams will star opposite Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in The Fighter.


The drama revolves around the life of boxer “Irish” Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) and trainer-brother Dick Eklund (Bale), chronicling their early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass., through Eklund’s battle with drugs and Ward’s eventual world championship in London.


Adams will play Charlene, a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper from Massachusetts who ends up dating Mickey.
