Raging Bull is a 1980 American biographical sports drama film directed by Martin Scorsese, produced by Robert Chartoff and Irwin Winkler and adapted by Paul Schrader and Mardik Martin from Jake LaMotta's memoir Raging Bull : My Story.

Screenwriter Mardik Martin, a frequent collaborator with Martin Scorsese on films including “Raging Bull,” “Mean Streets” and “New York, New York,” died Wednesday in Los Angeles at 82.

Born in Iran to an Armenian family and raised in Iraq, where he worked for a film distributor as a teenager, Martin moved to the U.S. to study economics at NYU, then gravitated to the film department, where he met Scorsese in 1961. Soon after, he began working with the director on some of his early films such as the 1964 short “It’s Not Just You, Murray,” then on Scorsese’s feature debut, “Who’s That Knocking at My Door?” and documentary “Italianamerican.”

Man Dies After Allegedly Shooting At LAPD Officers On Patrol In El Sereno

Man Dies After Allegedly Shooting At LAPD Officers On Patrol In El Sereno LAPD officials say two officers were on patrol at about 11:30 p.m. at Lombardy Boulevard and Alhambra Avenue when a man standing on a corner shot at them. The officers followed the shooter as he ran through an alley and returned his gunfire. The shooter was hit by the shots and taken to a hospital, where he died, police said. “These things can happen,” LAPD Sgt. Barry Montgomery said. “These officers were not looking for anyone. Again, they were just on patrol in the area, and he fired upon them unprovoked.” Neither officer was hurt in the shooting, although an LAPD cruiser was damaged.

Screenwriter Howard Rodman was among those who recalled his career.

As writer Peter Biskind recounted in “The New Hollywood,” “The two young men sat in Martin’s Valiant and wrote. In the winter, in the cold and snow.”

Martin co-wrote 1973’s “Mean Streets” with Scorsese, then co-wrote “New York, New York” with Earl Mac Rauch. After moving to Hollywood, Martin worked for Chartoff-Winkler Productions, for whom he wrote Ken Russell’s “Valentino.”

Man dies after shooting in northwest Oklahoma City, police say A man died Wednesday evening after he was shot in the head in northwest Oklahoma City. Shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to the London Square Apartments in the 7600 block of Northwest Sixth Street, near the intersection of Melrose Lane and North Council Road.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the homicide tip-line at 405-297-1200.

Mean Streets opened at the New York Film Festival to excellent notices and played strongly in New York but failed to duplicate that level of business elsewhere. Even so, Mean Streets established Scorsese and De Niro as formidable young talents and marked the beginning of a

Though “The Last Waltz,” Scorsese’s 1978 film on the Band’s final concert, was a documentary, Martin worked on writing the treatment as he did for Scorsese’s documentary “American Boy: A Profile of Steven Prince.”

For the 1980 “Raging Bull,” Martin spent a year and a half researching boxer Jake LaMotta’s life and co-wrote the screenplay with Paul Schrader, earning a Golden Globe nomination. He told the Los Angeles Times in 2007, “De Niro wanted to make ‘Raging Bull,’ but Marty didn’t [because] he hated boxing and sports.”

Until he found a second wind as writing professor at NYU and USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Martin had a difficult period during which he became addicted to cocaine and lost out on writing jobs such as “Carlito’s Way.”

His last screenplay credit was for Fatih Akin’s 2014 “The Cut.”

A documentary about his life, “Mardik: Baghdad to Hollywood,” was made in 2008.

Former NFL player Dick Woodard dies at 93

Former NFL player Dick Woodard dies at 93 Dick Woodard, an offensive lineman and linebacker who played five seasons of pro football, has died at the age of 93. Woodard was the great uncle of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who confirmed the death on Twitter. “This morning my Uncle Dick Woodard went to be with the Lord at 93 years old,” Cousins wrote. “He played for the Redskins & Giants and was one of the oldest living NFL players. Played a big role in my love for the game from a very young age. We will miss you Uncle Dick!” Born in Britt, Iowa, in 1926, Woodard was an All-Big Nine player for the Iowa Hawkeyes, playing alongside his brother Ralph Woodard, who is Cousins’ grandfather.
