ST. LOUIS — The Kurt Warner story has always been begging for a theatrical adaptation. Now, we're just a few months away from that becoming a reality.
On Wednesday, Lionsgate Films and Warner himself revealed a first look at the biopic coming to theaters in December, called "American Underdog".
The movie will chronicle Warner's football journey from grocery store worker, to Arena League player and eventually Super Bowl champion and NFL MVP with the St. Louis Rams and a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Kurt and his wife Brenda Warner are executive producers on the film, which stars Zachary Levi as Kurt, Anna Paquin as Brenda and Dennis Quaid as Rams coach Dick Vermeil.

"I've heard so many people over the years who have said they've been inspired or encouraged because of my story," Warner said in the first look trailer. "And that's what I think is so cool."
"It's very difficult to step into the shoes of not just an NFL quarterback, a hall of fame NFL quarterback, who threw a football his entire life and still throws a football beautifully," Levi said in the trailer.
