Mickey Rourke's worn many hats: actor, boxer, wrestler, and now the multi-talented toughman's channeling his energy toward bodybuilding, in bulking up with workouts as well as narrating the follow-up to 1977's Pumping Iron, Generation Iron.

As we previously reported, Generation Iron marks the follow-up to 1977's Pumping Iron, a contemporary look at competitive bodybuilding featuring seven Mr. Olympia competitors (Phil Heath, Kai Greene, Branch Warren, Dennis Wolf, Ben Pakulski, Hidetada Yamagishi and Roelly Winklaar) as they prepare for the annual muscle showdown on an international level.

Yudin said his goal in making it was "to focus on the lives of these athletes, and explore what motivates and inspires them both in this unique world and in their everyday lives.”
