October 15, 2018
Roadside will release the movie Feb. 22, 2019.
Roadside Attractions has picked up faith-based feature Run the Race, which was exec produced by Tim Tebow and his brother, Robby.
The movie follows Zach and David, two brothers reeling from the death of their mother and their father’s abandonment. Zach, who is an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship in the hopes of earning he and his brother, David, a ticket out of town. But when a devastating injury sidelines Zach, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future.
Tanner Stine and Evan Hofer star, along with Mykelti Williamson and Frances Fisher. Chris Dowling directed from a script he wrote with Jake McEntire and Jason Baumgardner.
Reserve Entertainment and 10th Leper Productions are behind the movie, which was produced by Darren Moorman, McEntire and Ken Carpenter. Along with Tebow, exec producers include Erik Weir, Trey Brunson, Joe Kosakowski and Erik Dellenback.
Roadside recently released faith-based drama I Can Only Imagine, which grossed $83.5 million at the domestic box office.
“I Can Only Imagine, Roadside's highest-grossing film, affirmed that inspirational, quality faith-based stories can reach a huge, highly valued audience," said Roadside Attractions co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. "Tim and Robby Tebow are fantastic partners, and we believe their Run the Race will be embraced as enthusiastically by audiences nationwide.”
Added Tebow: "I wanted to be part of something that’s encouraging and inspirational to the viewer. 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.”
