‘Big George Foreman’, a forthcoming biopic of the former heavyweight champion, has released a new trailer.

‘Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story of the Once and Future Heavyweight Champion of the World’ is based on the remarkable true story of one of the greatest comebacks of all time and the transformational power of second chances.

Fuelled by an impoverished childhood, Foreman channelled his anger into becoming an Olympic Gold medalist and World Heavyweight Champion, followed by a near-death experience that took him from the boxing ring to the pulpit. But when he sees his community struggling spiritually and financially, Foreman returns to the ring and makes history by reclaiming his title, becoming the oldest and most improbable World Heavyweight Boxing Champion ever.

The film stars Khris Davis, Jasmine Mathews, Sullivan Jones, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., John Magaro with Sonja Sohn and Forest Whitaker.

It is directed by George Tillman Jr. from a story by Dan Gordon and Frank Baldwin & George Tillman Jr, and a screenplay by Baldwin & Tillman.
