The cast of Fighter is all filled with dudes at the moment, and Relativity is hoping to change that. The studio is in talks with Melissa Leo to star opposite Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg.

Melissa Leo for Fighter

If Leo agrees, she will play the mother of Bale and Wahlberg in the drama.

Directed by David O. Russell, Fighter tells the story of Boston fighter "Irish" Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) and how he was helped to the world lightweight championship by half-brother Dicky Eklund (Bale). The film is scheduled to enter production this summer.

If you have never heard of the actress, you can next catch Melissa Leo in Meet the Rileys, where she can be seen starring opposite James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart.
