Hollywood has given the Kurt Warner movie project the green light.
Zachary Levi is tackling the major NFL player's life story for his next big-screen outing.
The Shazam! actor will take the cinematic field as former quarterback Kurt Warner in American Underdog, a faith-based biopic about the National Football League Hall of Famer's rise to national stardom playing for teams like the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.
Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company announced Wednesday that Levi will team with directors Jon and Andrew Erwin to adapt Warner's memoir All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football, and the First Miracle Season for the big screen, with Friday Night Lights writer David Aaron Cohen, Jon Gunn (I Still Believe), and Jon Erwin co-writing.
The film will also take inspiration from Warner's various interviews over the years as it tells the story of his early life stocking shelves at a local supermarket to becoming a two-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl champion.
