According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Ruddy Morgan Organization is going back to the ring, after the success of Million Dollar Baby. The production company is developing F.X. Toole's Pound for Pound, the last work of the author, whose work served as the basis of Baby before his death last year.

Ruddy Morgan principal Al Ruddy will serve as producer on the film.

The story revolves around a trainer whose life is spinning out of control and the young Latino boxer who comes into his life. Harper Collins will publish the book next year.
