Is it DeNiro and Edgar Ramirez and not Pacino and Gael Garcia Bernal in “Hands of Stone”?

The movie about Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran, “Hands of Stone,” was supposed to be a “go” project, with Al Pacino as the guy’s trainer and Gael Garcia Bernal as the famous fighter, famous quitter (“No mas. No mas.”).

Now it’s Robert DeNiro and Edgar Ramirez? Not a trade down, certainly (Bernal is far better known). But will this one go before the cameras, as is?
