Multihyphenate Corbin Bernsen is taking his sports pic “25 Hill” on the road for a 11-city tour, starting in Pittsburgh from Oct. 1-2.
25 Hill,” which stars Bernsen, who also directed, wrote and produced, tells the story of a 12-year-old boy (Nathan Gamble), who after the death of his father, partners with a local fire chief (Bernsen) to build a soapbox derby car.
The All-American Soap Box Derby has affected generations of American kids and their families,” Bernsen said. “It’s as American as apple pie, baseball and the county fair.
At a time when we’re intent on rebuilding our country, it’s great to celebrate a community event that starts at the family level,” Bernsen added.
Bernsen will participate in a Q&A session following each screening, where he’ll also stage a local soapbox derby race. Other cities include Athens, Tenn., from Oct. 22-23, Culpepper, Va., on Nov. 6, and Houston, which ends the tour Dec. 10-11.
Pic also is set to screen at the Heartland Film Fest in Indianapolis on Oct. 15.
Home Theater Films will release the film spring 2012.
