Tim Tebow and his brother producing faith-based football movie
Tim Tebow has broken into the filmmaking industry, and we’ll give you one guess as to what the theme of his first movie is.
Faith and football, of course.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tebow and his brother Robby are listed as executive producers for a film called “Run the Race.” The feature is in the final stage of postproduction and filmmakers are negotiating a theatrical release.
The film, which is about two brothers who were abandoned by their father and are dealing with the death of their mother, stars former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL running back Eddie George.
“This is a story about overcoming the hard issues of life, about the power of sacrifice, the power of family and the power of forgiveness,” Tebow said. “I love being a part of a project like this because it will impact lives.”
George also offered some of his thoughts on the movie.
“Sports really is a microcosm of how life is,” he said. “Somebody’s going to deal with adversity. Somebody’s going to deal with loss. Somebody’s going to deal with pain. Somebody’s going to deal with victory and success. I think this film reflects that.”
Tebow’s stock was on the rise in the minor leagues this year before he suffered a season-ending injury. Between producing a film and dating the reigning Miss Universe, it’s good to know Tebow has plenty going on in his life besides baseball.
