Major studios in Hollywood declined to finance this movie but because of Paramount's enthusiasm of the material, the studio executed a right of first refusal. The script then ended up at producer Ryan Kavanaugh
who then reworked it to make it more accessible and family-friendly (Kavanaugh self-funded the $25 million movie including the marketing campaign). When it came to the distribution stage, Paramount beat three other studios in a bidding contest for video and theatrical distribution. See more
[during the press conference
In fact, we expected a much better fighter.
I'm just grateful to be here and have the opportunity. Thank you, guys, for the shot.
Shea, who DO you respect as a fighter, and who'd you like to fight next?
I plan on moving right through Micky Ward tomorrow, moving on to other great fighters, like Gatti. Yeah, I believe Gatti and I'd make a great match.
