Sony said the film, directed by Michael Mann, will be shown in a few hundred locations nationwide. Ali passed away on June 3.
It was recently reported that Smith, who received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the legendary boxer, would be a pallbearer at Ali’s funeral this Friday, June 10, in Louisville, Kentucky.
“With the passing of Muhammad Ali, we have received many requests for this film to return to theaters, in celebration of his life,” said Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution.
“The film truly honors everything that made Ali one of the central figures of our time, a man who commanded his sport but whose personal faith and principles made him mean so much more,” Bruer added.
