Los Angeles, CA – April 10, 2024 – On April 12th, Mucho Mas Media will release Julio Quintana’s golf drama The Long Game (THE LONG GAME – Official Trailer (2024) ( starring Jay Hernandez and Dennis Quaid, in theaters nationwide.

The film had its world premiere at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Narrative Spotlight Audience Award and received rave reviews from critics praising its top-notch performances and calling it a crowd-pleasing and uplifting film based on a true story. This marks director Quintana and Quaid’s reunion after the success of their first film, Netflix’s true-story sports drama Blue Miracle.

The Long Game, inspired by the book “Mustang Miracle” written by Humberto G. Garcia, follows the true story of five young Mexican American caddies in 1955 who created their own golf course in the middle of the South Texas brush country. Despite outdated and inferior equipment and no professional instruction to begin with, they would go on to compete against wealthy, all-white teams and win the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship.

Quaid and Hernandez play central roles in "The Long Game," helping lead the San Felipe team to victory during the 1950s.

“We are thrilled to share this powerful and inspirational film with audiences across the country who can come as a family to celebrate this true underdog story. Making this film with an all-star Latino cast and crew and amazing partners like Bonniedale sets an exciting blueprint for Mucho Mas Releasing,” said Javier Chapa, co-founder of Mucho Mas Media. 

“I could not be more proud of The Long Game and place it in the same vein as The Rookie and Breaking Away. It’s a true and inspiring story beautifully put to screen by Julio Quintana. Great sports movies transcend the sport itself—this is an American dream story and exemplifies the kind of stories Bonniedale seeks to tell,” said star and producer Dennis Quaid.

Alongside Hernandez and Quaid, The Long Game stars comedy legend Cheech Marin, who returns to the green for a charming, heartfelt performance for the first time since Tin Cup. Newcomers Julian Works and Paulina Chavez give marquee performances opposite Jaina Lee Ortiz, Brett Cullen, and the hilarious and lovable Oscar Nuñez. In addition to directing, Quintana also wrote the script alongside Paco Farías and Jennifer Stetson; produced by Javier Chapa, Ben Howard, Dennis Quaid, Marla Quintana and Laura Quaid; executive produced by Jay Hernandez, Phillip Braun, Christian Sosa, Simon Wise, Colleen Barshop and Vincent Cordero.
