According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tim 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.”
Eddie George also had this to say.
“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.”
