Red V. Blue is the first film to document the hottest rivalry in college sports today: Louisville vs. Kentucky basketball.
With back-to-back national championships in 2012 and 2013 for the Wildcats and the Cardinals respectively, there is no doubt that the Commonwealth of Kentucky is home to the ultimate college basketball feud. Kentucky Basketball is the best in the nation.
When it comes to basketball, there is no middle ground in Kentucky. You are one side or the other. It’s Louisville Basketball or Kentucky Basketball. You are red or blue. Make the choice, or it will be chosen for you.
We were in New Orleans in 2012 to document the historic Final Four showdown between UofL and UK. And we were in Atlanta in 2013 for the Cardinals first national championship since 1986. We also covered the 2012 Louisville Kentucky basketball rivalry game at the Yum! Center. And the year before we documented the 2011 Louisville Kentucky basketball rivalry game at Rupp Arena.
Red V. Blue features tons of never-before-seen footage that any true sports fan will want to see. We talk Kentucky basketball with legendary high school basketball coach Bill Mike Runyon during a varsity basketball practice at Paintsville High School in eastern Kentucky. And we go into the barbershops of Louisville to talk to rival barbers Mark Wagner Jr and Boone. Plus we’ve got interviews with tons of coaches, players and personalities, including:
- Denny Crum
- Pat Forde
- Matt Jones
- Derek Anderson
- Mike Rutherford
- Tom Leach
- Oscar Combs
- Luke Whitehead
- Peyton Siva
- Gorgui Dieng
Principal photography will be completed this summer. Our target release date is early December 2013. The movie will be released theatrically in Kentucky, as well as digitally and on DVD. A host of cool Red V. Blue merchandise is in the works and will be for sale at our screenings and in select retail locations. Additionally, we are planning some unique event-based screenings, which will feature former coaches, players, as well as personalities and music artists.
