Glenn Withrow and Ivy Withrow Talk About Their New Movie ‘The Last Champion’

GameStop, Inc.

Director and co-writers Glenn Withrow and Withrow Talk About Their New Movie about Wrestling, The Last Champion.

Former Kentucky state wrestling runner-up, Glenn Withrow and his attorney daughter Ivy Withrow, along with the amazing Hallie Todd, produced and wrote, The Last Champion, a film about John Wright (Cole Hauser), a local Olympian who lost all his glory based on a scandal that threw him out of the Olympic games.

In this interview, with the Withrows, we spoke about wrestling, something I caught but had to cut out of the interview (which, yes you will notice the jump cut) and how the sport is an allegory for the struggles of day-to-day life. We also speak about the cinematography and a whole host of other things.

Oh, and don’t worry, about Hallie Todd, we will list the Mrs. Withrow’s accolades in the interview I conducted with her about The Last Champion tomorrow.

Official Synopsis:

The Last Champion is an inspirational family sports drama that will have you believing in second chances. Beautifully photographed in the Pacific Northwest, it’s a story about faith, loss and redemption starring Cole Hauser (Yellowstone), Hallie Todd (Lizzie McGuire), Randall Batinkoff (X-Men: First Class) and Peter Onorati (This is Us). The film is directed, produced and co-written by actor Glenn Withrow (The Outsiders).

John Wright was a hometown hero – the powerful star of his high school wrestling team and a promising Olympian. He could have had it all… but one bad decision destroyed his dreams and forced him to leave under a cloud of scandal that has haunted him ever since.
Twenty years later, John returns to his small town after his mother’s death, hoping to save his family home from foreclosure. His icy reception proves his former friends and neighbors still haven’t forgiven him for letting them down. Unexpectedly, John gets the opportunity to turn everything around – by coaching his high school’s wrestling team. There he meets Michael, a talented underdog with a troubled home life, facing a vicious opponent out to destroy him both on and off the mat. Can John become the leader the team and Michael needs, or will he lose himself to the dark demons of his past?
The Last Champion is available today on VOD and DVD.
