Kurt Russell Grabs A Tight End

Kurt Russell will play a high-school football coach in “Touchback” for Freedom Films says the trades.

Brian Presley plays an out of luck farmer/fireman whose promising football career came to an end years before due to an injury he sustained during a playoff game.

One day he finds himself thrust back into reliving that game and must make the choice of which way he wants his life to go.

Melanie Lynsky and Christine Lahti (“Obsessed”) also star. Don Handfield penned the script and will direct. Shooting begins this week in Michigan.
