Resurrecting the Champ (R1) in April
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Resurrecting the Champ on 1st April 2008 priced at $27.98 SRP. When a struggling sports writer with dreams of big-time stories rescues a homeless man from an attack by a gang of street thugs, he unwittingly finds himself with a one-time boxing legend believed to be dead. Discovering Bob “The Champ” Satterfield is actually alive could be the story of a lifetime and the title shot the young journalist has been waiting for. What begins as an opportunity to bring back to life the memory of a boxing great turns into a chance for the ambitious reporter to examine his own life and relationship with his family. Inspired by the 1997 Los Angeles Times Magazine article and written by J.R. Moehringer and directed by Rod Lurie, Resurrecting the Champ stars Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Hartnett, Kathryn Morris, Teri Hatcher and Alan Alda.
