Opening in theaters on August 22nd is the new sports drama When the Game Stands Tall from director Thomas Carter (Metro). The film is based on the true story of De La Salle High School's football team from Concord, California who won a record-setting 151-games from 1992–2003. The movie stars Jim Caviezel (Transit), Michael Chiklis (High School), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), Alexander Ludwig (Lone Survivor), Ser'Darius Blain (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Clancy Brown (Hellbenders).

IAR's Los Angeles Correspondent Heather Newgen recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with De La Salle High School football coaches Terry Ediso and Bob Ladoucer to talk about When the Game Stands Tall, which was inspired by their true life story. The two coaches discussed the new movie, doing their first press junket, a possible sequel, their first reaction to Hollywood wanting to make a movie about their lives, what it's to watch your life story unfold on the big screen, their involvement in the filmmaking process, the only script change that Edison requested, and the film's inspirational story.
