Nick Nolte shoots movie in Atlantic City

Nick Nolte was at Caesars in Atlantic City last week to film scenes for the Lionsgate drama Warrior.

Nolte's character is blue-collar former boxer Paddy Conlon, who, after years of estrangement from his family over his alcoholism, reunites with his youngest son Tom (played by Brit Tom Hardy) and trains him to fight in a mixed-martial arts tournament held in Atlantic City. And guess who Tom fights? Why, his older brother Brendan, played by Aussie Joel Edgerton.

(Guess the title "Raising Cain" was taken.)

Gavin O'Connor (Miracle, Pride and Glory) directs. The cast also includes Jennifer Morrison (Dr. Allison Cameron on House). 

The movie, due out next year, also was shot in Pittsburgh and at the former West Virginia Penitentiary at Moundsville.
