Hollywood veteran Dennis Quaid and Oscar-nominated star Virginia Madsen are among the actors cast in the Zachary Levi-starrer American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story.

The sports drama, which hails from Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company, will chronicle the story of titular NFL legend. The movie will track Warner's unlikely journey from stocking shelves at a supermarket in Iowa to become an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback.

Quaid and Madsen join the movie along with actors Ser'Darius Blain, Adam Baldwin, Bruce McGill, Danny Vinson, Chance Kelly, and Hayden Zaller.

David Aaron Cohen, Jon Gunn, and Jon Erwin have penned the screenplay, which is based on interviews with Warner and his memoir, All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football and the First Miracle Season.

Kingdom Story Company's Jon and Andrew Erwin will produce the movie alongside Mark Ciardi and Kevin Downes. Warner and his wife Brenda will co-produce.
