Focus Features Acquired "Underdog (2008)" Script



Veteran MTV News correspondent Gideon Yago has sold "Underdog (2008)" movie script to Focus Features.

The good-luck fortune belongs to Focus Features. The studio has successfully acquired the movie script for the upcoming "Underdog (2008)".

Veteran MTV News correspondent Gideon Yago was the one wrote the script for the drama flick. Yago reveals that the reason behind his writing of the screenplay was "a bad run" he had between 2004-05. During that period, he spent time with young soldiers in the Middle East, covered the aftermaths of Hurricane Katrina and the Kashmir earthquake and was receiving many late-night phone calls from the young soldiers he had met in Fallujah and Baghdad.

On his project Yago said, "I wanted to write a movie about small-town America, about growing up, and make it more understandable", while adding "It's so not black and white. It's going to take a lot of years for these guys to make sense of the experience they've had. And their families, too."

As of the story, "Underdog (2008)" follows a soldier who returns home in disgrace and must reconcile with the mother of a buddy who died in Iraq. Meanwhile, another young solider, the guy's best friend, returns as a hero, though the truth might be more murky.
