Cue the band!
Hollywood came to Louisville to flm part of the movie "I Am Potential,"
an inspirational story based on the life of Patrick Henry Hughes, 10A, who
captured the nation's attention by playing in the UofL Marching Band,
despite being born with a rare genetic disorder that left him without
eyes and physically disabled.
Jimmy Bellinger plays the part of Hughes, while Burgess Jenkins
("Remember the Titans," "Nashville") portrays Hughes' father, Patrick
John Hughes, and Judge Reinhold ("Beverly Hills Cop," "Stripes,"
"Fast Times at Ridgemont High") takes on
the role of UofL's marching band director, Greg
Byrne, who was critical
to providing Hughes
a chance to fulfll his
potential. Filming took
place in July at Papa
John's Cardinal Stadium
and the movie is slated
for release in 2014.
