David Boyd’s baseball drama Home Run has been acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films. Samuel Goldwyn Films will be releasing the movie starring Scott Elrod, Vivica A Fox, Dorian Brown, and Charles Henry Wyson on April 19, 2013.
Baseball all-star Cory Brand (Elrod) knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.
Hoping to save her client’s career after a team suspension, Cory’s agent (Fox) sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can’t wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.
As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind (Brown). With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.”
Announcing the acquisition, Samuel Goldwyn Films President Meyer Gottlieb stated, “Just as audiences cheered when we released Facing the Giants with Provident Films, we know they will be inspired by the compelling, moving and triumphant story of Home Run.”
“I hope this film can be a source of strength and understanding for the many, many good people in the world in need of a helping hand,” said director Boyd.
