Actress Hilary Swank Headlines Erwin Brothers’ Upcoming Movie ORDINARY ANGELS

By Movieguide® Staff

Actress Hilary Swank headlines cast members for Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate’s upcoming movie, ORDINARY ANGELS.  

Deadline confirmed Swank, along with REACHER’s Alan Ritchson, as cast members for the movie directed by Jon Gunn (THE CASE FOR CHRIST). 

“I’m thrilled to be working with Hilary and Alan,” Gunn said. “They are both actors with incredible range, who find humanity and vulnerability in every character they play. They are perfectly matched to bring this complex and inspirational true story to life.”

Deadline reported: “Set against the backdrop of the worst snowstorm in Kentucky history, pic is inspired by the incredible true story of a struggling hairdresser (Swank) who single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father (Ritchson) save the life of his critically ill young daughter.”

Jon Erwin, Andrew Erwin, and Kevin Downes will produce the project through their Kingdom Story Company. Previous Kingdom Story productions include AMERICAN UNDERDOG and THE JESUS MUSIC. 

“Kingdom Story Company endeavors to bring inspiring true stories to life on screen. Ordinary Angels spotlights one family’s seemingly insurmountable struggles and the everyday people who helped them in remarkable ways,” Downes said. “Hilary Swank and Alan Ritchson bring to life this heroic example of how one person can change a family and how that changes a community and gives rise, quite literally, to life and to hope.”

Movieguide® has honored the Erwin Brother’s projects in the past at the annual Movieguide® Awards Gala for their morally uplifting and hope-filled content.  

Their most recent movie, AMERICAN UNDERDOG, is nominated for multiple Movieguide® Awards.

Our review of AMERICAN UNDERDOG reads:

AMERICAN UNDERDOG is an uplifting, entertaining sports drama about the highly honored quarterback, Kurt Warner. It shows the challenges Warner overcame and is intentionally very clean and inspiring. At a young age, Kurt wants to be a winning quarterback, but he struggles making it into the National Football League. He falls in love with Brenda, a divorced woman with two children. They struggle until Kurt becomes a star in the Arena Football League, then becomes a popular starting quarterback in the NFL in 1998.

AMERICAN UNDERDOG is a well-plotted sports drama, with strong personal elements and heartwarming moments. The main characters and storyline are well crafted by the directors and lead actors. AMERICAN UNDERDOG has intense football violence that gives power to the story, but it’s not too intense. The movie is marred by some low-key foul language, which is often mumbled. AMERICAN UNDERDOG contains strong references to Christianity and faith. It stresses doing the right thing, having God as your Lord and Savior, praying for help at the lowest point, and much more. AMERICAN UNDERDOG is recommended for older children and up.
