The Muhammad Ali biopic, ‘Ali’, starring Will Smith in the role of the boxing legend, is coming back to US cinemas, in honour of Muhammad Ali. The movie’s re-release by Sony Pictures will see it get screened this weekend in a few movie theatres, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“With the passing of Muhammad Ali, we have received many requests for this film to return to theaters, in celebration of his life,” said Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “The film truly honors everything that made Ali one of the central figures of our time, a man who commanded his sport but whose personal faith and principles made him mean so much more.”
It’s been reported that Smith will be a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali’s memorial service to be held this week in Ali’s hometown, Louisville, KY. Muhammad Ali, also known as ‘The Greatest’, passed away last week at the age of 74. He was a three-time boxing heavyweight champion.
