Entries in Woodlawn Movie (7)
What happens when football and faith come together in the most relevant, life-changing way possible? The answer to that question can be found in the upcoming feature film WOODLAWN. The Erwin Brothers (Moms' Night Out, October Baby) have partnered with Pure Flix (God's Not Dead, Do You Believe?) and Provident Films (Fireproof, Courageous) to present this undeniable true story surrounding the spiritual awakening that captured the Woodlawn High School football team in 1973.
Starring Jon Voight, Sean Astin, Nic Bishop, and newcomer Caleb Castille, WOODLAWN demonstrates what can happen when true love and unbridled unity meet at the 50-yard line. With the racially-charged early 1970s as its backdrop, WOODLAWN and its groundbreaking African American superstar Tony Nathan experience an unprecedented time of revival and reconciliation that ultimately leads to the largest high school game ever played in Birmingham.
Check out the powerful new trailer for WOODLAWN, coming to theaters nationwide October 16, 2015, and don’t miss out on an opportunity to share its message of hope with friends, family members and football fans alike. Get ready to see what happens WHEN GOD SHOWS UP!

Welcome to the first behind-the-scenes production diary for WOODLAWN!
"In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player of the Woodlawn High School football team, including its coach Tandy Gerelds. Their dedication to love and unity in a school filled with racism and hate leads to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of its first African American superstar, Tony Nathan."
