"The Hammer," a true story based on the life of former UFC light heavyweight Matt Hamill, is all set to premiere Thurs., Oct. 27, 2011. Rich Franklin will also appear in the movie as Hamill's wrestling coach. Here's the synopsis from IMDB:
THE HAMMER is a sports drama depicting the struggles and successes Matt Hamill faces on the way to becoming a champion. Raised among those with the ability to hear, Matt later finds himself no less an outsider amidst the Deaf Community. Through sheer determination, he uses his perceived disability as an asset, and becomes both the first deaf wrestler to win a National Collegiate Championship and an inspirational force to the hearing and deaf alike.
The reviews have been overly complimentary. Anyone plan on checking this one out?
