Alive & Kicking: Women's Soccer Movie
On July 14, filmmaker Scott Abramovitch visits Movie Addict Headquarters to talk about Alive and Kicking, his upcoming film about soccer moms and how starting a woman’s soccer league changes their lives on and off the field. Based on the true story/book written by New York Times bestselling author Harvey Araton, the movie is an underdog sports story focusing on a group of multi-ethnic women who learn what it means to be teammates and friends.
Abramovitch, who wrote the screen adaption, will be directing this motion picture, and his company (Breaking Ball) is producing it along with U.S. soccer icon Mia Hamm, actor Gil Bellows, and Mediabiz’ Karine Martin. Luc Montpellier (Away from Her ) is also on board to do the cinematography.
“We just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise money to shoot the movie,” Abramovitch explained. “We’re hoping the timing is right because of the Women’s World Cup and the incredible performance of the US team.”
Movie fans should be interested in the exciting film-related rewards being offered during this Kickstarter campaign, and Abramovitch has agreed to discuss some of them during his interview.
No stranger to Movie Addict Headquarters, Abramovitch dropped by the show last year to talk about The Calling, starring Susan Sarandon, which he adapted for the screen from the mystery novel by Inger Ash Wolfe.
“Alive and Kicking: Women’s Soccer Film” airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. Pacific Time) on Tuesday, July 14, 2015. During the live show, listeners are invited to call in and to participate in a chat. An archived segment will also be available.
