Zachary Levi is playing legendary quarterback, Kurt Warner, in American Underdog, which is revealing a behind-the-scenes look ahead of its release.
Lionsgate Movies has unveiled a behind-the-scenes video for its biopic, American Underdog, which is hitting theaters this December. The film will tell the story of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback, Kurt Warner. Warner’s unique journey from supermarket employee to Super Bowl champion was filled with challenges, but his support system, his work ethic, and his determination enabled him to reach his dreams. With the help of Michael Silver, Warner detailed his story in the book, All Things Possible, which served as inspiration for the movie.
Warner and his wife, Brenda Warner, are executive producers for American Underdog, starring Zachary Levi (Kurt) and Anna Paquin (Brenda). Dennis Quaid is playing Dick Vermeil, who coached Warner and his fellow Rams to a Super Bowl victory in 2000. Adam Baldwin, Bruce McGill, and Ser’Darius Blain are part of the supporting cast as well. Andrew and Jon Erwin, also known as the Erwin Brothers, are directing the film. Jon Erwin also wrote the screenplay with David Aaron Cohen and Jon Gunn.
