We’re thrilled to announce that Katie Taylor: The Comeback is coming to Irish & UK cinemas this summer. Katie Taylor: The Comeback is an intimate account of how the boxer attempts to rebuild her career following a year of turmoil. The film is set to be released in UK and Irish cinemas by Wildcard this summer.
The film is directed by Ross Whitaker and produced by Whitaker and Aideen O’Sullivan for True Films. It is executive produced by Andrew Freedman for Venom, who are also co-producing the project. As well as Wildcard, it is supported by the Irish Film Board, national broadcasters RTE and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
Katie Taylor: The Comeback will follow the intensely private champion as she attempts to restructure her career following a period of turmoil in her life. Following disappointment at the Rio Olympics, where she failed to defend her London Olympics crown despite being favourite, she decided to turn pro, and agreed to let a small crew document her efforts.
