Tony Hawk Producing Skating Comedy Film

The ’90s were fantastic, weren’t they? I’m talking about the days of Brink!, Tony Hawk, the heyday of the X-Games, and the popularization of extreme sports. If you’re like me, and would love to roll around in the nostalgia of that bygone era — no matter how terrible it truly was — then have we got a series for you.

According to a new report from Variety, Tony Hawk will be executive producing and script/technical advising a new film called Back to the Grind. The movie will be a comedy that follows five middle-aged men who “reunite the skate team from their youth to save their beloved park from being taken over by a team of obnoxious young skaters. Although they had settled into their adult lives, the five men eagerly embrace the chance to relive their glory days.”

“I’m excited to be part of this project, which comes at a time when skateboarding culture is so widely recognized across many generations,” Hawk said. “Back to the Grind will be a fun, entertaining story that can enhance skateboarding’s growing popularity.”

This sounds like a pretty fun premise, and for a ’90s kid, it really hits the sweet spot for me. The film will come courtesy of Branded Pictures Entertainment.

“This idea came from my love for the intersection of art and athleticism that defines skate culture. We look forward to making a movie that will celebrate this sport for all audiences,” producer Marc Marcum of Branded Pictures Entertainment said. “We’re thrilled to have an icon like Tony Hawk join us in making what we believe will be the definitive skateboarding comedy for skate enthusiasts old and new.”
