Zachary Levi’s American Underdog to be available on Amazon Prime Video to rent

Directed by Erwin Brothers, American Underdog has been backed by Kevin Downes under the banner named Kingdom Story Company.

Kurt Warner portrayed by Zachary Levi rose from being a stock boy at a grocery shop to being a 2 time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback in American Underdog.

The storyline centres on Warner's compelling story and years of challenges and obstacles that might have disrupted his dreams of becoming an NFL player – although when his dreams seemed mostly out of reach, Warner endures and finds the confidence to show the world the champion that he already is, thanks to the support of his wife, Brenda played by Anna Paquin, and the praise of his family, coaches, and teammates. The film is an inspiring story that shows that with faith, family, and determination, anything is achievable.

“Kurt has a serious demeanour, but he also has a fantastic sense of humour,” Levi said of his first biopic role in an interview. Because he is outspoken and expressive, while Kurt is more delicate and refined, he had to take a step back to capture his wit and quiet demeanour.

Warner adds that the essence of who they are as males is actually extremely similar. While it's important to find someone who looks like them, he also wanted to capture the essence of who he is. As he got to know Zach, he realised they had a lot of similar values and wanted to portray themselves in the same way.

Adam Baldwin, Bruce McGill, Ser'Darius Blain, Chance Kelly, Brett Varvel, O.J. Keith Simpson, and Cindy Hogan are among the cast members.

The film will be available on Prime Video for rental.
