“While chasing the buckle, a veteran bull rider with nothing left to lose and an amateur bull rider with everything to lose find out that there is more to winning than holding on for 8 seconds.”
TOUGH DRAW is a drama in the tradition of Friday Night Lights, American Sniper, and A Star is Born, set squarely in Texas against the backdrop of rodeo and bull riding. A once brash, world-champion bull rider has put his rodeo days behind him after a series of personal tragedies when an opportunity to mentor a young cowboy arises. As his protege climbs through the ranks, the former champ is encouraged to ride again. Soon, upstart and old-hand find themselves on a collision course for the title, and the former champ will be forced to choose between another shot at personal glory or staying the course that brought him back from near ruin.
With the appeal and reach of a large demographic, Tough Draw has recently acquired a Distribution Deal for theatrical release upon completion of Post Production. With an estimated 500-750 screens opening weekend, the success of the film could push the stipulative deal to go even further nationwide and into foreign markets. With the relationships of Executive Producer, Tuff Hedeman, the production team fully anticipates a large support from not only the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour, but the PRCA as well in looking to push advertising dollars to some of the biggest events and rodeos on the calendar.
