Resurrecting Champ Josh Hartnett

Resurrecting Champ Josh Hartnett

Josh Hartnett arrives at LAX airport after a flight from NYC on Monday afternoon wearing his signature plaid button-down and horn-rimmed glasses (and sunglasses). He and Maria Sharapova were spotted together on Thursday at Salt Bar on the Lower East Side.

Josh, 28, had his latest film Resurrecting the Champ open at Sundance Film Festival last month. The film also co-stars Teri Hatcher, Alan Alda, and Rachel Nichols and opened to positive reviews:

  • “Samuel L. Jackson knocks out a championship performance in this gritty, uplifting tale about an ex-boxer.” — The Hollywood Reporter
  • “Another strong film from (director Rod) Lurie … an endearing, crowd-pleasing drama.” — Comingsoon.net

Resurrecting the Champ tells the story of an up-and-coming sports reporter (Hartnett) who rescues a homeless man (“Champ,” Samuel L. Jackson) only to discover that he is, in fact, a boxing legend believed to have passed away. What begins as an opportunity to resurrect Champ’s story and escape the shadow of his father’s success becomes a personal journey as the ambitious reporter reexamines his own life and his relationship with his family. No US nationwide release date has been set.
