A trailer for “Rough Rider” featuring Paul Kimmage. It’s being filmed this year so we’re unlikely to see the finished version until 2014.
Here’ the blurb from Wildfire Films:
We are currently in pre-production on Rough Rider, the story of Paul Kimmage’s quest to find honesty and hope inside the most physically and mentally demanding race on the planet, the Tour de France.
To this point, we have filmed with Paul as he has seen Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace while Paul himself has been threatened with legal action by senior members of the UCI, the world cycling body.
This summer, we will follow him on the 100th Tour de France. Told against the backdrop of the centenary Tour, and through the eyes of one of the most aggravated whistleblowers in sports journalism, we are going on a journey that could prove to be one of the most contentious sports films of our time.
The film is due for completion by November 2013, with broadcast and screening details to be confirmed.
