Sunset Pictures have begun casting Raging Bull II, While this seems quite surprising Producer Joe Allegro has been pushing for a prequel since 2006 to Martin Scorsese's masterpiece. Writer and director Martin Guigui has already decided to cast William Forsythe as an old Jake La Motta. The production is currently searching for a young actor to play La Motta in his younger years. The project, which has also signed newcomer Dre’ Michael Chaney to play Sugar Ray Robinson, is being reported to be both a prequel and sequel. The film is currently seeking a buyer at the AFI [American Film Market] and filming is scheduled for early 2011. Whatsplaying.au broke the news earlier today from Australialand.
