Nashville, Tenn. (February 19, 2013) – Samuel Goldwyn Films in association with Provident Films announced today their partnership in the marketing and distribution of David Boyd’s (The Walking Dead, Friday Night Lights) HOME RUN on April 19, 2013. Past successes of the Goldwyn and Provident partnership include Fireproof, October Baby and Facing the Giants.

Baseball all-star Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.
Hoping to save her client’s career after a team suspension, Cory’s agent (Vivica A. Fox) sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can’t wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind (“Emma,” played by Dorian Brown). With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

Based on thousands of true stories, HOME RUN is an inspirational reminder that with God, it’s never too late … freedom is possible.

The Celebrate Recovery® program highlighted in HOME RUN is a forward-looking, real-life addiction recovery program that grew out of Southern California’s Saddleback Church and is now found in churches all over the U.S. and the world. Celebrate Recovery® was founded in 1991 by Pastor John Baker of Saddleback Church with the goal of overcoming life's issues with a twelve-step program based on Christian principles.

A Hero Productions Film in association with Impact Productions, HOME RUN is directed by David Boyd, with a screenplay by Brian Brightly, Melanie Wistar, Eric Newman and Candace Lee. The film is executive produced by Carol Spann Mathews and Tom Newman. HOME RUN stars Scott Elrod, Vivica A. Fox, Dorian Brown and Charles Henry Wyson.

According to Meyer Gottlieb, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films: "Just as audiences cheered when we released Facing the Giants with Provident Films, we know they will be inspired by the compelling, moving and triumphant story of HOME RUN.”

Filmmaker David Boyd added: “I hope this film can be a source of strength and understanding for the many, many good people in the world in need of a helping hand.”

Executive Producer Carol Spann Mathews added: “HOME RUN portrays that no matter what burdens we may be carrying, we are not alone. There are others who have struggled with the same thing and have found a way through."

The deal was negotiated by Ian Puente, Vice President and General Counsel of Samuel Goldwyn Films and by Elsa Ramo on behalf of the filmmakers.

In addition to the theatrical release of the film, Home Run the novel is releasing March 2013 with David C Cook publishers. Travis Thrasher, celebrated novelist, was enlisted to adapt the screenplay into a deeply moving story for fiction readers.

Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome

The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
