Life made them underdogs. Faith made them champions. From Kingdom Story Company and The Erwin Brothers—the directors of I CAN ONLY IMAGINE—comes AMERICAN UNDERDOG, based on the inspirational true story of Kurt and Brenda Warner. Undrafted as a quarterback out of college, Kurt found himself stocking shelves in a grocery store to help support Brenda and her two kids, all while trying to hold onto his fading dream of becoming an NFL quarterback. This movie is sure to inspire the dreamer in all of us!
Kurt and Brenda Warner’s incredible true story of faith, family, and football was made for the big screen. You’ll soon find out why when Lionsgate releases AMERICAN UNDERDOG, in theaters everywhere beginning Christmas Day. Learn more about the Warners at KurtWarner.org and Treasurehouse.org.
