Tim Tebow has certainly been busy since parting ways with the NFL.

The former quarterback has had a successful transition into professional baseball and has also become a best-selling author.

The athlete can now add movie producer to his growing résumé.

Roadside Attractions has picked up “Run the Race,” which Tebow and his brother, Robby, executive-produced, and it’s set for release on Feb. 22, 2019.

The film tells the story of Zach and David, two brothers who are mourning the recent death of their mother and the abandonment of their father.

Zach is a star football player working to provide a future for himself and his brother by trying to earn a scholarship. But when an injury derails his plans, David has to take the lead and toil hard to nab the scholarship his brother simply can’t get anymore.

The film boasts an impressive cast, including Mykelti Williamson (“Forrest Gump,” “Con Air”), Frances Fisher (“Unforgiven,” “Titanic”), Mario Van Peebles (“Heartbreak Ridge,” “New Jack City”), and Kristoffer Polaha (“Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?”).

Roadside Attractions released the faith-friendly box-office hit “I Can Only Imagine” earlier this year, and the company cited that film, in a public statement, as one of the reasons for having confidence in “Run the Race.”

“’I Can Only Imagine,’ Roadside’s highest-grossing film, affirmed that inspirational, quality faith-based stories can reach a huge, highly valued audience,” said Roadside Attractions Co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. “Tim and Robby Tebow are fantastic partners, and we believe their ‘Run the Race’ will be embraced as enthusiastically by audiences nationwide.”

Tim Tebow, 31, said of the upcoming film in a public statement, “I wanted to be part of something that’s encouraging and inspirational to the viewer. I believe ‘Run the Race’ accomplishes this by showing two brothers struggling with real life, but [they get] through it by supporting each other and their faith. I hope those who see it can walk away with more faith, hope and love.”

Mainstream Hollywood may not be putting out a lot of content that this country’s conservatives and faithful want to see — but it’s important to remember that films like “I Can Only Imagine” and “Run the Race” exist and are pushing back against the leftist and unoriginal culture in Hollywood.

These are films conservatives should be supporting in order to send a strong message that more need to be made.
