Amy Adams up for The Fighter

She’ll play a tough bartender in the pic…

Amy Adams is looking to switch her rep from sweet heroine to tough bartender with a role in David O. Russell’s The Fighter.

The movie, which charts the early years of championship boxer “Irish” Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his half-brother who helps him train (Christian Bale), is set to finally kick off shooting this summer.

Adams would play a gritty drink slinger from Massachusetts who dates Wahlberg.

The film has been through changes both in director (Darren Aronofsky was planning to take it on before David O. Russell) and casting (Matt Damon was attached to one of the leads), but now it’s actually looking like Wahlberg’s months of training might actually have been worth his time…
