Release Date Set for Katherine’s New Movie ‘The Ringer’

Thanks to Hoodie for the pointer:

Fox Searchlight Pictures have announced that The Ringer, in which Katherine stars opposite Johnny Knoxville will be released in theatres on November 5th 2004.
“Desperate for cash to help a friend in need and pay off his smarmy uncle’s gambling debts, Steve Barker sinks to an all time low…he attempts to fix the Special Olympics by pretending to be a person with intellectual disabilities. But he is completely out-classed by his fellow Olympians, who are not only superior athletes, they’re also wiser in the ways of the world.

Several of his fellow competitors immediately spot Steve as a fraud, but because they too would like to see the fall of Jimmy, the snooty reigning champion, they join forces to help THE RINGER win. Together they train Steve to become a better athlete and, most importantly, a better man.”

Katherine will portray Lynn – a beautiful Special Olympics volunteer who volunteers to work with the mentally challenged. Lynn takes Steve (Knoxville) under her wing to help him compete and naturally he falls in love with her.

An official web site for the film is also coming soon.
