Erik Kernan Jr. (Hartnett; Lucky Number Slevin, Pearl Harbour) needed something big to get his life back on track, but what he found was more than he could have hoped for. Now the story he just told, is nothing compared to the one he’s about to live…From director Rod Lurie (The Contender, Straw Dogs), RESURRECTING THE CHAMP tells the tale of compassion of up-and-coming sports journalist Erik who is desperate to escape from under his broadcaster father’s shadow to become a renowned writer and make his family proud.
On intercepting an alley brawl, Kernan comes across an old homeless man (Jackson; Pulp Fiction, Unbreakable) who calls himself ‘The Champ’ and claims to be the heavyweight boxer Bob Satterfield, who was ranked at no. 3 in the world in the mid 1950s. Erik writes an article with the help of the old fighter to write his biopic and retells heroic stories about matches of the past.
