Jason Sudeikis and Jeremy Irons are set to star in the Jesse Owens biopic “Race”, with Focus Features officially landing the domestic rights.
Stephan James has already been cast as Owens with Sudeikis set to play his obsessive coach and mentor Larry Snyder and Irons set to take on the role of Avery Brundage, the head of the American Olympic committee.
Stephen Hopkins will direct the film that is based on the true story of legendary sports star Jesse Owens. In 1936, the track and field athlete competed at the Berlin Olympics, going face to face with Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy.
Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel penned the script.
