Back on April 16, 2009, I put up a post about Tim McGraw’s new movie. It’s called “The Blind Side,” and at that time I said it was starring Tim and Sandra Bullock. But after looking at the movie trailer, I’m wondering if it’s not going to be another one of those movies like “Four Christmases,” where we all called it Tim’s movie, but it really wasn’t. He had a very small part in that one.
From what you can see in the movie trailer, this is going to be Sandra Bullock’s movie. I’m not sure how much we’ll see of Tim, but he listed third in the movie’s cast listing, so maybe we’ll see more of him than the you would think by viewing the trailer.
Regardless of who we see most on screen, I think it’s going to be a great film, and I’m looking forward to it’s release date on Nov. 20, 2009.
Here’s a little recap of what the movie is about… Tim will play the part of Sean Touhy, and Sandra will play the part of Leigh Anne, his wife. The movie is based on a best selling novel by Michael Lewis, called “The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game.” It tells the true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American teen from a broken home who is taken in by a well-to-do white family that sees extraordinary promise in him.
From what I can tell, at this point, Hollywood didn’t change the story too much. It still might be one that I’ll read, as well as watch. Here’s a clip of the author talking about the book. It really tells you about Michael Oher, and the story that took him from the streets of Memphis to the NFL.
I better get myself moving here. I need to peel potatoes, put a roast in the oven, shower, and get to church. I’ll talk to you all soon. I hope you enjoy this beautiful Sunday! I have a feeling it’s going to be a hot one, but it’s really pretty out there right now.
