LEGENDARY explores a teenage boy’s journey to reunite his family ten years after the death of their beloved father, a state collegiate wrestling legend.
Cal Chetley (Devon Graye), a bright, undersized fifteen-year-old is an outsider in the blue collar town of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, known for its high school wrestling program. His older brother Mike (John Cena), a one-time high school wrestling champion with whom Cal is estranged, left Cal and his mother Sharon (Patricia Clarkson) behind years ago after the tragic car accident killed their father.
However, Cal is determined to put his family back together. With the encouragement of Harry “Red” Newman (Danny Glover), a charming, albeit mysterious man who has a way of appearing just when Cal needs him most, Cal joins the high school wrestling team hoping his brother will train him. What ensues is an emotional journey about Cal’s drive to succeed and his unwavering pursuit to reunite his family.
In the tradition of acclaimed and popular films such as “Rudy,” “Karate Kid” and “The Blind Side,” “Legendary” is the inspirational story about overcoming adversity. It stars award-winning actress Patricia Clarkson (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona”), WWE Superstar John Cena®, (“12 Rounds”), Devon Graye (“Dexter”), Madeleine Martin (“Californication”) and Danny Glover (“Death at a Funeral”). “
