We had the opportunity to speak with Darren Taylor about his new movie “The Greatest Coach of all Time” and it was a great conversation.

Dean Cain and Darren Taylor

This is a great time for the release of faith-based feature-length film The Greatest Coach of All Time.

Here is what Patty had to say about that night.

Are you ready for your Comeback? Watching the movie “The Greatest Coach of All Time” you will have the mind set and strength to begin!

I was invited to the Premiere by Bill Walsh, seeing the poster, I immediately thought of Barry Switzer being a native of Oklahoma. Everyone I asked before had a different Coach they thought was the greatest.

After interviewing several actors in the movie, Darren Taylor, Steve Poore, Michael Clayton, RV Brown, Josh Liske, Brandon Rossell and watching the movie, it took a totally different direction of who the coach was.

The movie followed scenarios of lives crumbling, people down on their luck and how they made a comeback by throwing away their fear, being a believer and following the direction of the playback with scriptures from the Bible.  We can’t choose what happens to us or around us, but we can choose how we react.

Amazing faith base movie, relatable to all walks of life, young, old, Christian, or not. Your spirit will be filled with positivity after watching.

Dean Cain of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman fame starred along with Darren Taylor. Taylor, author of bestselling book “The Greatest Coach of all Time” was also writer, director, producer of the feature.  He is also a singer/songwriter who lived in Nashville before relocating to Florida and with several of his songs featured in the movie, including the movie theme song appropriately titled “The Greatest Coach of All Time.”

Iris Reyes, 1st AD and script supervisor was Darren’s firsthand lady. She has worked on many short films, TV commercial and Lifetime movie as script supervisor. Iris has been 1st AD on 2 other features.

Upcoming young actors to look forward to their careers would be Brandon Rossel and Lilly Rose Smith.

Lily Rose Smith and Miley Smith, who play sisters in the movie, are a part of a set of triplets in real life. Their sister Tierney Smith is also an actress.

The Premiere was held at the Tampa Landmark Theater which reminded me of watching premieres at the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd. The night was sold out to 1100 seats. We all need a friend to talk to. Jesus has been my best friend since I was 8 years old. Every day he walks with me and talks to me.

Darren has scheduled another pre-screening of “The Greatest Coach of all Time” for Saturday, October 1st at Cornerstone Community Church in St. Pete, Florida. For more info go to www.cccstpete.com
