Written by Melanie Wistar, Brian Brightly, Eric Newman and Candace Lee, and directed by David Boyd, Home Run is an independent film about character Cory Brand, a professional baseball player with a substance abuse problem who finds redemption coaching a Little League team.

Tulsa World is reporting that Vivica A. Fox will star in Home Run as Brand's agent, Helen Landy.

From Tulsa World:

Fox, who completed her 10 days of filming last week in Tulsa and Okmulgee, said the film's message resonated with her.

"I've had major epiphanies in the last couple of years, to be very honest with you," she said by phone from Los Angeles.

"Sooner or later you've got to grow up and look in the mirror at yourself. ... I've worked to rid myself of negative habits, negative forces, negative friends.

"I've focused on my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ so I can experience all the blessings that he has for me.

"I was really excited about doing this movie. It's Christian-based, and I'm an absolute sports junkie. I grew up playing basketball, volleyball and track, and I was a cheerleader, ... so this was a good fit."
