Devon Sawa is spending the week doing press on a new film about to hit theaters on Friday, May 11, 2012 – The Philly Kid. It’s about a former NCAA champion wrestler is paroled after 10 years in prison. Now, to save a friend’s life, in a series of cage fights he must agree to do the impossible – lose.
“This movie the lead guy Wes Chatham – he was in the marines, comes from a wrestling background, he has boxing, he did a little jiu jitsu in the marines. He had that background – it’s very authentic. Rich Clemente worked on the film. He kind of put two cents in every once in a while and I think this is gonna come out a lot different than some of the other MMA movies. It’s a lot more real. It looks a lot like UFC or Strikeforce or what not. I think they did a good job.” Devon Sawa.
