The Way Back

The Way Back is indeed a sports drama film directed by Gavin O’Connor as well as written by Brad Ingelsby that will be released in 2020. It features Ben Affleck, Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins, as well as Janina Gavankar and tells the storey of an alcoholic construction worker who has been hired to coach the basketball team there at high school where he had been a legendary athlete.

Warner Bros. Pictures released the picture in theatres inside the United States on March 6, 2020. Warner Bros. made the movie accessible to ever own digitally on March 24, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, which forced movie theatres throughout the world to close. The movie garnered mostly favourable reviews from critics, including an appreciation for Affleck’s performance. Nevertheless, because COVID-19 had only been in cinemas for two weeks, the picture failed at the box office.

On June 11, 2018, this was announced that director Gavin O’Connor, as well as actor Ben Affleck, would re-team on The Has-Been, a Warner Bros. drama movie written by Brad Ingelsby about such a former basketball player who already has lost his wife as well as a family foundation due to that of addiction, as well as he attempts to reclaim his soul by coaching a high school basketball team at his alma mater. On September 26, 2018, this was announced that comedian Al Madrigal has accepted the role of Torrance to portray Dan, a well-mannered high school math teacher as well as the school’s assistant coach that trusts in Affleck’s character just after the head coach resigns. Jennifer Todd, Gordon Gray, Ravi Mehta, and O’Connor would have been the producers. Janina Gavankar landed a role in the movie in October 2018.

The Way Back was confirmed as that of the film’s title in July 2019. Rob Simonsen was named as the movie’s composer in August 2019. Despite his personal bouts with alcoholism as well as treatment, Affleck discussed how the picture served as a type of therapy for him.

Principal filming began in October 2018 inside the Los Angeles neighbourhoods of San Pedro as well as Long Beach. The Chaffey High School gym in Ontario, California, was used for a lot of the inside scenes.

The movie was supposed to be released on October 18, 2019, however, it was postponed. It was, however, postponed six months from March 2019, until March 6, 2020.

Due to movie theatre closures due to COVID-19 pandemic limitations, Warner Bros. Pictures stated on March 19 that the film will be accessible digitally in the United States and Canada through Premium VOD on March 24.
