Upcoming Film: The Phenom

The Phenom

The Phenom is an upcoming American sports drama film written and directed by Noah Buschel, starring Ethan Hawke, Paul Giamatti and Johnny Simmons.

A talented young pitcher struggles to throw strikes. The major league club sends him to a sports psychologist, where memories of his abusive father come to light.
The Phenom was shot primarily in Atlanta, Georgia. Principal photography wrapped on December 20, 2014.  Hawke had previously considered taking a part in Buschel’s second film, 2007’s Neal Cassady, and the two became friendly after that.

A promo reel for The Phenom was shown at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, which led to multiple international presales by Conquistador Entertainment, including for Latin America, Australia, Canada and the Middle East.
