A great golf movie that is going to be released this spring, “The Squeeze”, was directed and written by Terry Jastrow. Filmstars Jeremy Sumpter from “Friday Night Lights” and Peter Pan, Christopher McDonald from Happy Gilmore and Katherine LaNasa from The Campaign are a few of the stars to name a few. This thriller film will be available on premium VOD and in select markets starting April 17.
The film is about a notorious gambler who discovers a modest young man in small rural town with uncommon golf skills. The gambler convinces him to abandon his dreams of winning the US Open and start playing in high-stakes matches. The movie captures the wholesome young golfer who gets caught up in the underworld of illegal gambling.
“I watched THE SQUEEZE and really enjoyed it,” said Jack Nicklaus, Winner of 18 Major Golf Championships. “It’s a fun movie that tells an interesting story, and the golf elements are so real you actually believe it could happen.”
“THE SQUEEZE is a wonderful golf movie because it’s so authentic,” said Five Time Major Championship Winner, Phil Mickelson. “It hooks you in the beginning and stays interesting and entertaining right to the end. I’m looking forward to seeing it again.”
“THE SQUEEZE has the best poker scene I’ve ever seen in a movie,” said Steve Wynn, Chairman of Wynn Resorts. “If you like gambling, golf and Las Vegas, you’ll love this movie.”
ARC Entertainment‘s Head of Acquisitions Scott Moesta stated that he felt that Terry Jastrow along with the rest of the cast did a fantastic job with the film.
