Zachary Levi is set to star in an inspirational family drama at Lionsgate called The Unbreakable Boy. Levi will play “the father of Austin, a boy with both a rare brittle-bone disease and autism. But what makes Austin truly unique is his joyous, funny, life-affirming worldview that transforms and unites everyone around him. Levi’s character changes his life as he comes to see Austin not as the symbol of something broken, but the triumph of an indestructible spirit.”
Jon Gunn, the co-writer and executive producer of I Still Believe, wrote the script and is directing the film based on the book by Scott M. LeRette with Susy Flory. The film is set to start production soon, then Levi will star as NFL quarterback Kurt Warner in the film American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story.
This sounds like a good role for Levi, who is relentlessly likable. Levi can be seen next in the military thriller Prisoner 760, as well as the animated adventure movie Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure, both due to release in 2021.
