Hours before the College Football Playoff Committee released its latest ranking, Stephan James took on the powers that be in college football. In the Russell Wilson produced drama, James stars as a college football quarterback who plans a protest that could change the nature of amateur sports for decades to come.
“Three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James and teammate Emmett Sunday ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated. With billions of dollars at risk and legacies on the line, the stakes could not be higher,” the film’s description reads.
“Now, with only hours until kickoff, the head coach and various power brokers must race against the clock to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.”
James is not the only star to appear in this film. Lil’ Rel Howery, J.K. Simmons, Uzo Aduba and Jeffrey Donovan will also appear in the film. Not to mention, Jemele Hill, Nick Wright and Russell Wilson will make cameos in the film.
