The Zachary Levi Kurt Warner Biopic AMERICAN UNDERDOG Gets a Poster and Release Date
Lionsgate has released a new poster for the upcoming biopic sports drama American Underdog, which tells the story of football champion Kurt Warner. Zachary Levi is taking on the role of Warner and it was announced that the movie would be released in theaters on December 25th.
The synopsis reads:
“American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner, who went from a stockboy at a grocery story to a two-time NFL MVP, Superbowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers around Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player — but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda, and the encouragement of his family that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is inside. American Underdog is an inspirational story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family, and determination.”
American Underdog is based on interviews with Warner and his memoir titled, All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football and the First Miracle Season. It was directed by The Erwin Brothers, from a screenplay written by Jon Erwin, David Aaron Cohen, and Jon Gunn. The movie also stars Anna Paquin, Dennis Quaid, Cindy Hogan, Ser’Darius Blain, Adam Baldwin, Bruce McGill, Danny Vinson, Chance Kelly, Hayden Zaller, Cora Kate Wilkerson, and Nic Harris.
