Runner Runner director has set his sights on Bigger things for his next project. Bodybuilding biopic Bigger will tell the iron-pumping story of the Weider Brothers, who set up the Mr Olympia contest and the International Federation of BodyBuilding.

Partly based on the brothers' autobiographical Brothers of Iron (2006), Bigger will contextualize their journey to muscular supremacy within the framework of poverty and anti-Semitism the immigrant duo faced on their rise to stardom.

Do you think that Bigger will be a great biopic or just another dull sports movie? Movies like Moneyball have shown that quality sporting detail can still be spun into interesting and crowd-pleasing stories for the modern movie market. Can Bigger do the same? Let us know your thoughts below.
