2006's biggest star to headline lacrosse movie

Post  thecolorsblend on Wed Jun 01, 2011 10:22 pm

Superman Supersite derp who never cites the original source wrote:
Variety.com reports that "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh will star in "Crooked Arrows," an underdog sports pic set in the world of lacrosse.

Steve Rash ("Can't Buy Me Love") is directing from a script by Todd Baird.

The story follows a rag-tag Native American high school lacrosse team that is forced to join the local prep school league, which is comprised of better trained and equipped rivals.

Routh will play the tribal chairman's part-Native American entrepreneurial son who is tasked with coaching the reservation's motley lacrosse team in the hopes that he'll reconnect with his fellow tribe members. An unlikely and uplifting journey to the prep league's championship game ensues.

"I was moved by the script," said Routh, whose ancestors hail from the Kickapoo Tribe. "While it has all the ingredients of a classic underdog sports movie, it actually appealed to me on a deeper level. I think the father-son and brother-sister dynamics of the story are compelling, as is [the] more spiritual Native American aspect."

J. Todd Harris and Mitchell Peck are producing, while Sports Studio ("Miracle") will co-produce with a focus on authentic athletic casting, outfitting and choreography. Reebok is the film's first athletic corporate sponsor. Production is scheduled to start this July in the Boston area.

Basically it sounds like a lacrosse version of the Bad News Bears. Mind you, the sport can't be baseball because then you'd need a more rugged and manly lead. So maybe this is pretty good casting...

It won't matter, the film will still bomb! I could be wrong but I don't think so. BJ will be as wooden as ever, although he could surprise us & the 'human interest' part of the story might 'tear-jerk' a few hearts & it might perform better than expected.

But I doubt it. Suspect

Not about the same film but definitely about the same plank of wood:

Dylan, Rammbock Head to DVD
Source:Various
June 2, 2011


Two bits of DVD news to lay on you...

There's a good chance you missed Dylan Dog: Dead of Night in theaters. At least, that's what the box office numbers reflected. Now you'll be able to catch it on DVD and Blu-Ray sooner than later. Fox Home Entertainment is going to release the film on July 26.

Meanwhile, the German zombie film Rammbock is coming to DVD June 28 from Vivendi/Universal after a limited theatrical release in May.

Now let's see how '2006's biggest star' does on DVD. Certainly duh apologists will 'cream' themselves over this, especially the 'topless' shot! Wink

Sounds like a stupid film. Now I am not against sports movies. Like a bunch of them myself. But plot sounds a little flat.
