Distributor and Release Date Set for Tim Tebow-Produced Movie
"Run the Race" is a faith-based coming of age story about two brothers in difficult circumstances.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has been picked up by Roadside Attractions and will hit the big screen on February 22, 2019. You may remember earlier this year Roadside released the Erwin Brother's movie I Can Only Imagine, a faith-based picture that earned $83.5 million, making it the company's highest grossing film.
Run the Race is executive produced by Tebow and his brother Robby and focuses on two brothers in high school who have lost their mother and been abandoned by their father. The boys draw together and use their athletic talents - football and track - in hopes of earning college scholarships.
Tim Tebow, of course, knows a thing or two about football and earning a scholarship. A former NFL quarterback, he was also a Heisman Trophy winner during his college days at the University of Florida where he helped lead the Gators to two national championships. An outspoken believer, he says he joined this film project because he wanted to be a part of something inspirational for the audience.
" I believe Run the Race accomplishes this by showing two brothers struggling with real life, but them getting through it by supporting each other and their faith. I hope those who see it can walk away with more faith, hope and love."
The movie is directed by Chris Dowling and stars Evan Hofer and Tanner Stine as the brothers, Dave and Zach Truett. Mario Van Peebles plays the role of a pastor and another former NFL player and Heisman Trophy winner, Eddie George, also has a role in the film.
