1000 To 1: The Cory Weissman Story to debut in March; Watch trailer


1000 To 1: The Cory Weissman Story will debut on DVD and digital on March 4.

Delivering a message of unflinching courage, 1000 To 1: The Cory Weissman Story follows Gettysburg College student-athlete Cory Weissman, an eighteen-year-old basketball star, on his journey to recovery after suffering a horrifying stroke. Partially paralyzed, unable to play the game he loves, and facing an uncertain future, Weissman overcomes enormous challenges in this inspirational story. 

Based on a true story, David Henrie (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Wizards Of Waverly Place”) stars as Weissman. The film co-stars Golden Globe and Emmy® winner Beau Bridges (The Descendants).

1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story is produced by former longtime Disney executive Bruce Gordon and Bob Burris (“Growing Pains”), who also wrote the script, and was directed by Michael Levine (Nowhere Man).

The film is a production of Gettysburg Great Productions, LLC and was shot largely on the Gettysburg College campus in fall 2012 with the help of local residents, staff, and students.

DVD purchasing information will be made available closer to the debut date at www.1000to1movie.com
