Hands of Stone is a 2016 American biographical sport film directed and written by Jonathan Jakubowicz. It stars Édgar Ramírez, Robert De Niro, Usher, Ellen Barkin and Ana de Armas. The film premiered at Cannes on May 16, 2016 and is scheduled to be released on August 26, 2016, by The Weinstein Company.
Follows the life of Roberto Durán, who made his professional boxing debut in 1968 as a 16-year-old and retired in 2002 at age 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in the November rematch, saying ‘no más’ (no more).
The production on the film began in December 2013 in Panama. Principal photography was completed in March 2014.
