Dylan Baker’s Inspirational Drama ’23 Blast’ Set for Oct. 3 Release in 600 Locations

Inspirational sports drama “23 Blast” has been set for an Oct. 3 release in 600 locations in the U.S. through Ocean Avenue Entertainment in association with Toy Gun Films.

“23 Blast” is produced by Dylan Baker, Gary Donatelli and Toni Hoover. Exec  producers include Daniel Snyder (owner of the Washington Redskins), Misook Doolittle and Brent Ryan Green.

Baker directed “23 Blast” from a script by Bram Hoover and Toni Hoover. The film stars Baker, Stephen Lang, Alexa Vega, Mark Hapka, Max Adler, Bram Hoover, Kim Zimmer, Becky Ann Baker, Timothy Busfield and Fred D. Thompson.

Hapka stars as Travis Freeman, a typical teenager growing up in a small town in Kentucky who’s stricken with an infection that destroys his optic nerve. Under the influence of parents, a physical therapist, a coach and a best friend, Freeman helps his high school football team advance to the state playoffs.

“This movie is so much bigger than me,” Freeman said. “It represents the gift of a community coming together to help its own, and how faith manifests itself in many ways in the face of a tragedy; such as in hope, love, and personal courage.”

“23 Blast” was shot on location in Corbin, Ky. It won the 2013 Heartland Film Festival’s Audience Choice Award for Narrative Feature.
