The Kurt Warner Story is such an underdog tale that it had to be turned into a movie. And that’s exactly what’s happening, as the grocery store bag boy turned Super Bowl Champion will be coming to a screen near you. Kurt will be played by Zachary Levi, while his wife Brenda will be played by Anna Paquin.

The 38-year-old actress has come aboard to play Paula Warner, the wife of the NFL Hall-of-Fame quarterback, according to Deadline.
We have just learned that The Piano Best Oscar winner Anna Paquin has landed the lead in Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate’s American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story opposite Zachary Levi.
The drama, which Lionsgate is releasing, chronicles the true story of Kurt Warner, who went from stocking shelves at a supermarket to become a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl MVP, and Hall of Fame quarterback. Paquin will play Brenda Warner, Kurt’s wife.
The feature is written by David Aaron Cohen (Friday Night Lights), Jon Gunn (I Still Believe) & Jon Erwin (I Still Believe), and it’s based upon interviews with Warner as well as Warner’s memoir, All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football and the First Miracle Season. Kurt Warner and Brenda Warner are co-producing.
This should be an interesting watch. Playing Brenda will be tough for Anna Paquin, but I’m confident if she can pull off the hairdo, she’ll crush it.
