“Touchback” trailer hits the net

First trailer for “Touchback” hits internet, waiting for release details

 ”Touchback” filmed for several weeks during the summer of 2010, mostly in Coopersville, but also in Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Ohio in Coshocton, Columbus, and Warsaw.

The cast includes Kurt Russell as the head coach, Brian Presley in lead role, Melanie Lynskey as his wife, Mark Blucas as a friend and teammate, Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Christine Lahti as the mother, Mark Ellis as opposition coach, Barry Sanders in a cameo role as an Assistant Coach, Drew Powell, Sarah Wright, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, and Kevin Covais also star.

Touchback is written/directed by Don Handfield.

The movie is still in post-production, but the production company’s website indicates a May 2011 release.  However, we do not have official word on if that will be a national release or limited release or at a film festival or straight-to-DVD.  I am told they are working on a release date and there are hopes for a Grand Rapids premiere.

Sorry, trailer was taken down. (Had to remove the trailer because  it was not for public consumption. It was intended for sales, as it was edited – it tells basically the whole story – so it was not meant for general audiences. The PR for the production tells me they will contact me when they have a *real* trailer.)

I have captured several stills from the trailer here click on thumbails for larger picture:

Touchback is a fantastical story about

getting a second chance at life. At the brink of financial disaster, a former football star turned farmer and family man attempts suicide to save his family. However, when he wakes up he finds himself back in the past, reliving the events that led up to his career-ending, life-altering injury. He is forced to choose between his simple life and the path to fame and fortune.

    Oh, come on! Why remove the trailer when the text on the production company website gives virtually the whole plot away anyway?
